Winelands Marathon

This past Saturday, Magic828 Music Radio had the amazing chance to join the 41st edition of the Winelands Marathon and starting their 22k half-marathon. The moniker of being “The Capes most scenic marathon” is well earned. The Magic Van was situated amongst the beautiful rolling farmlands under the mountains surrounding Stellenbosch, just 6km from the finish line. But, the idyllic peace of the area just needed a touch of Magic to make it perfect, as we cranked up the music while thousands of runners came past.
Thanks to the Helderberg Harriers for bringing us on board as your radio partner, and to the Knysna and Districts Pipe Band for joining us at the Magic Watering Hole.
Here’s your chance to take a look back at all the fun that was had. We’ll see you next year Winelands!
