The STBB Red Hill Marathon takes place on the 26th of January 2019, starting from Fish Hoek Athletic Club.

Both the 42.2km and the 36.2km races will proceed from Fish Hoek AC along Kommetjie Road to Kommetjie, up Slangkop, through Misty Cliffs and Scarborough to the Perdekloof intersection. The 36.2km Classic will fork to the left up Red Hill. The Marathon will fork to the right and do a 6km loop towards Cape Point returning to the Perdekloof intersection where it re-joins the Classic up Red Hill. Both races are then run over Red Hill, down towards Simonstown Main Road and back through Glencairn. Just before the traffic circle runners will turn right into Beach Road, left into Recreation, then into Upper Recreation, through the back roads of Fish Hoek before finishing on the field at FHAC.
