Outsurance Gun Run hits 15 000 entries
The race originated in the early 90’s as a half marathon only and was originally a race to beat the noonday gun on Signal Hill in Cape Town which goes off every day at 12:00 noon. In fact, Cape Townians will often check their watches against the Noon Day Gun.
As the race grew in popularity, a 10km race was introduced. It now attracts big numbers and is arguably the third biggest road running event behind the Two Oceans and Cape Town Marathon.
