The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon is only days away.  As the preferred accommodation partner this year, we will be hosting quite a few of the runners.  They’ll be taken care of at our Cape Town hotels, with lots of extra love in the form of:

  • Early power breakfast on Saturday morning (from 4.30 am) and glucose station
  • Complimentary late check out on until 16h00 on Monday
  • Carbo loading dinner on Friday night (at an additional cost)
  • Scheduled shuttle to registration on race morning


We’re also lucky enough to be hosting Tanya Kovarski, one of SA’s much loved bloggers who made a name for herself live-tweeting the comrades marathon (while she was running it!).  Tanya will be staying with us at Southern Sun The Cullinan and has agreed to tell everyone about her experience not only with us at the hotel, but during the race too, look out for her tweets from Wednesday this week.

If you’re in the area, pop into The Cullinan’s foyer and take a selfie next to the Adidas stand and you can win some merchandise.

Of course making the beds and frying the eggs is one thing, but our team has decided to be even more involved in #OMTOM this year, so if you’re spectating or participating, keep a look out for the Tsogo Sun cheerleading spot.  Excited cheerleaders, lots of music, Guy McDonald as the MC, with loads of fun and encouragement will be coming your way.


Even more news, what would a special event like this be, without one of my famous competitions?  And this one is a goodie.  There can be TWELVE WINNERS! I’m giving away 3 weekend stays (bed and breakfast) at 4 of our Cape Town hotels, being:
