Deloitte Challenge

Race attractions

The Deloitte Challenge Marathon, Half Marathon and Cycle Race take place along the M4 north bound carriage way. The M4 at sea level offers breathtaking views and is a flat, relaxed route for both experienced and novice athletes.

Event attractions

  • This event is unique in KZN in that a Cycle Race will set off before the Marathon on the same route.  Cyclists will benefit from the M4 road closure and enjoy a scenic, fast ride into Durban, without worrying about traffic approaching from behind.
  • This is the final marathon before the Comrades Marathon qualifying criteria submission deadline of 4 May 2015.
  • For those Comrades runners, the Deloitte Challenge Marathon is perfectly timed to be the last ‘long run’ in a formal Comrades training schedule.  
  • A total of R60 000 prize money for the Marathon and Half Marathon. 
  • All the Deloitte Challenges, except the 5km Fun Run, are ChampionChip timed events.
  • Race medals will be awarded to all finishers, including the 5km Fun Run.
  • Stylish moisture management race shirts, in various sizes, will be made available to the first 5000 entries for the marathon events and to the 1000 Cycle Race entries.
  • The Deloitte Challenge takes place over a long weekend, thereby providing out-of-town athletes and their families with the opportunity to enjoy a couple of days on the KZN east coast.
  • The weather in early May is predictably stable, relatively cool and without the usual Durban summer humidity.
  • The Deloitte Challenge provides an effortless opportunity to give and support our preferred beneficiary - LIV Village, an organisation which provides holistic residential care for orphaned and vulnerable children.
