Sign up for the TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge and join runners across the globe to unite and ‘run for good’.
The Two Oceans Marathon was cancelled for a second consecutive year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with devastating effects on charities that have benefitted from the number of fundraising opportunities the event offered each year.
The TOM 2021 Virtual Charity Challenge can be run anywhere and anytime between 30 March and 30 April 2021. The event is entirely charity focused.

Proceeds raised for Edunova will be used for our Raspberry Pi learning initiative, which aims to purchase 10 Raspberry Pi devices for disadvantaged schools in the Western Cape.
COVID has placed a huge strain on our educational system and schools and learners need all the support they can get in order to bridge the resultant learning gap.
Raspberry Pi provides educational opportunities to learners. The device is preloaded with over 5000 e-books, educational software such as Khan academy, Scratch and an online Moodle platform. Each device will impact on approximately 100 learners. This content will help learners to improve their literacy, math's and science. Children will also be using the Raspberry Pi to learn how to code and thereby develop the skills necessary to problem solve, think creatively and critically - now a national requirement!
The more money we can raise the more Raspberry pis we can purchase and place in schools, the more learners lives we can impact. Each Raspberry Pi device costs R1,700. Please help support us by running the TOM2021 Virtual Charity Challenge and support our cause.
