Sports and Fitness
Cape Town is sports-mad with a rabid sporting fraternity feverishly supporting the city’s professional teams while chasing their own PBs.
Cape Town is a sports lover’s paradise. The area’s exquisite natural terrain and a strong industry makes it the go-to place for top annual events. Cycling, mountainbiking, horse-racing and running are on the sporting calendar’s list of highlights.
The city has a number of high profile sports teams, most notably the Stormers (rugby), Cape Cobras (cricket) and Ajax CT (football). They all enjoy rabid support with the city coming to a standstill on match-days with fans filling the stadiums, bars and restaurants to catch the big game.
The Mother City also plays host to some iconic events, including the Two Oceans Marathon and the Cape Town Cycle Tour, which is the largest timed cycling race on the planet! Both events are hugely popular amongst the amateur and professional ranks and the city comes alive as thousands take part and line the streets to support friends and loved ones.
If you’re a sports fanatic or a fitness nut, Cape Town needs to be on your bucket list.
