London Hack, 17th July

Here is a description of this event which takes place on 17th July:

“Starting at City Hall, we go through the historical cobbled streets along the South Bank. We’ll cross Millennium, Blackfriars and Westminster bridges, take in both Hyde and Regent’s parks and up to Primrose Hill. The loop is completed by passing Buckingham Palace and The Mall, winding our way along the Thames and making a final cross at Tower Bridge. It’s a beautiful walk that’ll give even seasoned Londoners a new taste of this amazing city.”

The route has been mapped out on here (it isn’t quite finished).  You can find out more information here.

Two Oceans Marathon, Cape Town, South Africa

On April 3rd (Easter Sunday) the Two Oceans Ultra and Half Marathons will take place in Cape Town South Africa.  Described by the organisers as “the world’s most beautiful marathon”, having visited Cape Town I would have to agree.

We had a look at the Mapometer Search Engine and found the route of the Half Marathon here.  Please email if you have posted the route of the Ultra Marathon or if anyone has any special routes they would like to share.
