Old Mutual Om die Dam Ultra Marathon is the largest inland ultra-marathon in South Africa, offering a 50km ultra marathon, a 21km half-marathon, a 10km route and a 5km fun run. It attracts over 7 000 participants.
Due to its scenic route – via the Hartbeespoort Dam – and family appeal, the race is consistently voted as one of the top national races.
The 50km race is the flagship event. Gold medals will be awarded to category winners, silver medals to men under 3:45 and women under 4:10, and bronze to all other finishers.
The 50, 21km and 10km events are timed by Championchip. No chip. No result. No prize. However, during 2014 a concession will be made to allow 10km runners only without a Championchip to participate as well. Those who own Championchips should however still wear them.
