Two Oceans organisers forbid political campaigning
Organisers have issued a statement forbidding political campaigning at the 48th edition of the race on Saturday.

“Our stance with regards to political campaigning, that is not permissible. We want focus on the runner where we strive to unite people, not divide them, and that the ethos and the spirit that Athletics South Africa brought in this rule. We don’t want any conflict on race day.”
