Will there be anywhere to rest?

Along the route will be gazebos and rest points. You are welcome to bring your tent. A race crew member will guide you where you can put up your tent.


What should I bring with me?

We recommend bringing:

  1. High-SPF sunblock
  2. Clothing for both warm and cold weather
  3. A hat
  4. Sunglasses
  5. A space blanket
  6. A headlamp
  7. Support packages for your athlete
  8. Extra changing clothes

Water/drinks (hot/cold) and food will be all available to purchase at the Stadium. However, if you have a preferred energizing drink or food, you can bring it along.


What is the walking surface like?

Partly a pristine athletic track and the rest are overall flat tarred roads in the Coetzenburg precinct.


How does the relay work?

Now, instead of splitting the walk equally into 50 miles or 25 miles per person, your team can divide the distance however you please. The main rule is that as a team you need to complete the 100 miles distance together. For further info or clarity, please mail info@africancenturion.com 


Are there any prizes?

That depends on what you mean by ‘prize’. Every walker who completes the distance gets a pin – but if you do the full Centurion by yourself, you’ll get a one-time-only number with massive prestige points. 

There will be a special awards ceremony at the end of the race, where special performances will be highlighted.


Can I bring family and friends with me?

Indeed you can; we call them your support. They have to buy a supporter ticket – tickets can be purchased here: Get Your Tickets


Can I replace a relay-team member if one drops out?

Yes, absolutely – just make sure you keep us up to date with any changes to your team.


What sort of picture should I upload for my profile?

Upload a portrait shot focusing on your face; if you have a sporty profile picture, so much the better.


What happens if the weather’s terrible?

Thankfully October is among the milder months on the Cape Town calendar.
