In April of 2014 Collen Makaza takes on the world’s best once again at the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon held annually in Cape Town. Competing against athletes from Kenya, USA, Zimbabwe, Great Britain, and other African countries Collen’s once again a firm favorite for podium. A record win will net him an additional R1million ($100k).

UPDATE – September 2013 saw Collen storming home to finish the grueling inaugural 68 KM Legends Marathon held in East London, South Africa, once again showing that this is one world class all-round athlete. Coming in a very respectable 6th position was Precious, his wife, whom he met on the finish line. Prior to that he obtained a 4th position at the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, having been pipped as a favorite along with fellow countryman, Stephen Muzhingi who, despite going the distance, did not perform as well as he would have preferred, due to an increasingly severe calf injury.

Both Collen and Precious are running in the colours of Team Toyota.

UPDATE – IAU WORLD TROPHY FINAL 20 OCTOBER 2012 – ITALY – Collen owned the race until he was pipped with 3 km left to go by GBR, leaving him to jog comfortably into 2nd position.
