The wildest of them all
The Big Five Marathon in South Africa is held among the wildlife of the African savannah.
In one of the most spectacular game reserves in Africa the challenging route goes right through the habitat of the African game, including the famous Big Five: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.
No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife!
The event features both a marathon and a half marathon distance.
