DIRECTIONS TO THE NEW VENUE AND PARKING AREAS

(The new venue at the Lewende Woord Kerk is 300m from the old venue at Hoërskool Zwartkop).

 

FROM JOHANNESBURG:

1. Along OLD JOHANNESBURG RD.:
Travel 7.2km on the Old Johannesburg Rd. from the Olifants off ramp, towards Centurion, past Hoërskool Zwartkop. Turn right into Lyttleton Rd. and travel 400m downhill. Turn right into Adam Tas Str. (first traffic light) to park at the Church or left into Fairway Ave., to park at the Boeremark.

To park at Hoërskool Zwartkop, travel 6.3km as above, then turn right into Mopani Rd. and travel downhill for 200m, then turn left at the gate into the school premises. (Entry UP Mopani Rd. will be CLOSED at 05h30, to clear the race route of traffic).

 

2. Along BEN SCHOEMAN HIGHWAY (N1-N14):
Travel North to Centurion/Pretoria and take the Jean Ave/Centurion off ramp, turn left into Jean Ave. (becomes Lyttleton Rd.) and travel for 1.4km. At the 3rd traffic light turn left into Adam Tas Str. to park at the ample parking at the Church or right into Fairway Ave., to park at the limited parking at the Boeremark.

 

 

FROM PRETORIA:

1. Along BEN SCHOEMAN HIGHWAY (N14):
Travel South to Centurion/Pretoria and take the Jean Ave/Centurion off ramp, turn right into Jean Ave (that becomes Lyttleton Rd.) and travel for 1.4km. Turn left into Adam Tas Str. (at the 3rd traffic light) to park at the ample parking at the Church or right into Fairway Ave., to park at the limited parking at the Boeremark.

 

2. Along OLD JOHANNESBURG RD.:
From Wierda Rd. (M10) travel for 1.70 km and turn left into Tamara Str., then right into Park Str. and right into Fairway Ave. to the limited Boeremark parking, which will be on your right, just before the traffic light. After the traffic light, across Lyttelton Rd., it becomes Adam Tas Str. for the Church parking.

 

PLEASE NOTE:
Please allow at least 30 min extra for traffic congestion (as possibly 12 000 other athletes also arrive, looking for parking). It would be sensible to plan to arrive at least 90 minutes before the start, to avoid congestion.

Limited parking at the Boeremark, but ample parking at the Church.

Please do NOT park on the BP garage premises.

Respect the marshals at all times. They are there to assist and know the parking situation best, (since they have radio communication).
