Taking the scenic route

Framed by Table Mountain on one side and the glistening Atlantic Ocean on the other, The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront has launched two running routes of 2.2km and 5km in distance. They both start at the Tourist Information Centre and snake past many well-known V&A Waterfront landmarks.

Depending on how far you go, the routes takes runners past the Two Oceans Aquarium, the One & Only Hotel and the Cape Grace Hotel before winding its way over the Bascule Swing Bridge, past the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, the Cape Wheel and the Amphitheatre, before reaching the iconic Table Bay Hotel.

From here, the route reaches the Breakwater and the newly developed scenic Boardwalk Path with various scenic lookout points where runners and walkers can take a breather as they soak up the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, and possibly even spot a frolicking seal or a pod of dolphins. Runners then make their way to Granger Bay where the Cape Town Stadium will come into view before finally heading back to the Tourist Information Centre.

The 2.2km route is marked in yellow while the 5km run is marked in red. Both are clearly signposted making it easy for runners to track their distance.

Free maps of the routes are available from the Tourist Information Centre.
