The 2011 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon was won by George Ntshiliza from the Eastern Cape, who completed the 56km race in 03:08. Second place went to Motlhokoa Nkabutlane (Lesotho), while Tsokang Maine (Lesotho) finished third to complete the world’s most beautiful marathon podium.
The women’s event was won by Oleysa Nurgalieva (Russia), with her twin sister Elena, in second place and Mamorollo Tjoka (Lesotho) claiming third prize.
The two winners each bank R250 000, which is not a bad return for less than four hours of work that involved taking in some magnificent scenery and having thousands of people cheering them on while doing so!
The race started from Newlands at the crack of dawn, finishing just down the road at the University of Cape Town.
