Build It Half-Marathon

Build It Half-Marathon

The annual Build It Half-Marathon begins at the Camperdown Police Station. The race is a point to point, run and walk event and finishes at the University track off Washington Road in Pietermaritzburg. The route takes runners over the last 20 kilometers of the famous Comrades Marathon, starting with an initial climb outside Camperdown, then the dropping down to the Tumble Inn, before providing runners with a physical test over Little Pollies and Polly Shorts on the way into the City of Pietermaritzburg. The Build It Half-Marathon is a good opportunity to train for downhill running, and at the same time allows runners to prepare themselves for the Comrades Marathon.
