Running the coastline of South Africa

Departing from Oranjemund in Namibia on 1 July 2008, following the same run format as he did in China, breaking each day’s target distance into 3 runs, morning, midday and late afternoon.

In this way David aimed to cover some 45km per day, with one rest day a week. He arrived in Mozambique’s Ponto D’Ouro 80 days later and just under 3500km covered.

David’s route saw him hugging the coastline as closely as possible, running predominantly on secondary roads.

Supported by a back up team of four who assisted with the necessary roadside assistance as well as all camping or accommodation, meals, communications and logistical arrangements.
