The Marathon runners will join the same route again after the loop.

The runners join up with the Simonstown Main Road at the end of Red Hill, and continue towards Fish Hoek.

Turn right into 2nd ave, left into Recreation Road, right into Central circle, right into Disa road, left into Erica Rd, right into Elgin Circle, left into Genoa, Right into upper Recreation Road, and then proceed to the Poplar Road footpath.  Once through the footpath, they proceed along Poplar Road, before turning right onto the gravel road at the municipal yard, left onto the sports field and to the finish outside the Athletic Club.
