The professional athlete program
The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is committed to supporting professional, elite and local athletes by offering more than R2.2million in prize money annually.
Due to numerous reasons including special drinks stations, organization, logistics, anti-doping & media, all international athletes and local athletes (who hope to qualify for prize money), need to apply and be accepted into the PAP, applications are to be sent through to the meeting organisers, for attention of the professional athlete co-ordinator, no later than 8 weeks prior to the event.
