The Korkie Ultra 56km used to be run from Pretoria to Germiston. Its flat and slightly uphill route resulted in it being known as the “slow poison marathon”.

Use app like runkeeper, or your garmin… My Account, under the race you did, click on Upload. Click on Choose file and select the screenshot from your device. Then click Upload. Any upload after this date will not be accepted, you will not appear on the results and you will not get your medal.
