Running the Om die Dam Ultra Marathon? We have a great accommodation special just for you

The Old Mutual Om die Dam Ultra Marathon is one of South Africa’s most popular races, known for its beautiful natural scenery, professional organisation and family friendly setting. First run in 1991, the flagship race of 50kms along with the half marathon, 10km race and 5km fun run has grown to an impressive 7,000 participants from all over South Africa and the world, making it a premier event in any runner’s calendar. From the view of the rising sun over the western most point of Hartebeespoort Dam to the gruelling challenge of Saartjie’s Neck and beyond, runners are treated to sweeping views of the landscape and strong support from organisers and charities. With refreshment stations supplying water, Coke, sweets, fruit and even Milk Tart, all runners are well looked after through the morning and well into the heat of the day.
