Age Categories

An athlete is not eligible for a prize in more than one age category, ie. an athlete is only eligible for a prize in the age category applicable to him/her or the younger category chosen by him/her provided he/she is wearing the relevant age category tag. An athlete, male or female, who finishes the race in first to tenth position, may, however, win his/her position prize as well as any applicable age category prize. Unless you specifically request in writing to MANDELA DAY MARATHON organisers to change your age category to a lower age category and approved in writing by the MANDELA DAY MARATHON technical delegate, you will be entered in the age category of your chronological age. (ASA rules 12 inclusive). Appropriate numerical age category tags must be worn on the front and back of the upper body garment. An athlete must provide positive identification to verify proof of age.
