Runners from the Tabletalk catchment area were among the thousands who took part in Celtic Harriers Athletic Club’s 55th annual Peninsula Marathon on Sunday, from Green Point to Simon’s Town.

The event, along with the West Coast Marathon in March, serves as a qualifier for the Two Oceans Marathon in April and Comrades Marathon in June.
