About: The African Bank Soweto marathon is no ordinary race. Dubbed "The People's Race", the African Bank Soweto Marathon has a special place in the hearts of many South African runners.
The only race of its magnitude set in a township where some of South Africa's greats have walked, the African Bank Soweto Marathon honours this heritage of Soweto by taking runners past the iconic landmarks of Soweto namely the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Walter Sisulu Square, the Regina Mundi Catholic Church, Credo Mutwa Cultural Village, Morris Isaacson High School & June 16 Memorial Acre, Vilakazi Street and the Hector Pieterson Memorial.
At this race people from all walks of life come together for the same cause - RUN.
The 2022, 27th edition surpassed the 19 000 entry-mark, making it the biggest one day race in South Africa for that year.
