Check out @Scienceofsport 's incredible @2OceansMarathon route guide, #OMTOM2014

The descent of Chapman’s Peak is actually a very, very important part of the race. You might think it is innocuous, and easy. But you’d be at risk of falling into the trap that will claim so many runner’s races. That’s because there is a real temptation to push the descent hard, either to make up lost time, or to really build yourself a ‘buffer’ ahead of the hard climb of Constantia Nek, or perhaps because you think to yourself that it’s just on a half marathon to go, and you need to go hard. All scenarios are potentially dangerous because the descent is long enough, and just steep enough (especially at the bottom) that you can really take it out of your legs. That downhill running, and the eccentric muscle work, can ‘soften your legs up’, and the price for that will be paid a few kilometers later when the road starts to head up again, for the Nek.
