Win an Inspirational 2013 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon trip to Cape Town!
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Inspirational Cape Town has it all: beautiful views, breathtaking running routes and a never-ending melange of fun and exciting things to do.
This year, Cape Town Tourism and our partners are giving you the opportunity to win an all expenses paid inspirational trip for two to the Mother City, including flights, accommodation, car rental and city experiences, as well as entries into the world’s most beautiful marathon, the 2013 Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra Half or Full Marathon.
