IN PICTURES: Cross The Line Half-Marathon 2024

The race consisted of a range of ages, with men and women who took on the 21.1km, 10km and 5km marathon course distances.

The 2024 Cross The Line Half Marathon took place in Boksburg on Sunday morning with a total of 1500 participants, surpassing the 2023 turnout, which was just under a thousand runners.

The marathon course, which started at Food Lovers on North Rand Road, took the hundreds of runners through the streets of Beyers Park, Bartlett, Impala Park, Bardene and back to Food Lovers via North Rand Road.
Plenty of friends and families turned up to cheer the runners on, while the exhibition of different products, snack foods stalls and music created a buzzing atmosphere across the parking lot during the race.
Here is a selection of photos from the marathon at the weekend:
