The Big Five Marathon

Date & Location

Limpopo province, South Africa

Organiser’s Description

The Big Five Marathon in South Africa is held among the wildlife of the African savannah. Runners from all over the world will meet in one of the most spectacular “Big Five” game reserves in Africa. In these magnificent surroundings, we combine exciting game drives with a challenging marathon route going right through the habitat of the most famous African game: elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife.
