Skukuza Half Marathon

 Welcome to Kruger Park Marathon Club

…the organisers of the race amongst the lions.

Members of the Kruger Park Marathon Club have to be resident in the Kruger National Park – ie no outsiders may join the club. We have 40 members – a small club and hold our annual half marathon on the first Saturday of August for 1800 runners.

The next race will be on Saturday 3rd August 2024. The 2024 entries are closed, SUBS can be done after APRIL 2024 at R150 per SUB. We have a lucky draw system for the race as more than 3000 runners apply to run the race. The only way a runner can insure a place in the race is by entering via the Nature Conservation option and pay R1200 for our selected nature conservation projects.

If you choose the Lucky Draw option (R100) you will be notified via email if you qualified for the race. Please remember that all lucky draw entries must belong to a running club and if you are chosen, another R200 will need to be paid to confirm your lucky draw entry.
