Until the MAD2Run Team 2023 embark on their adventure
MAD2Run is an epic 8 day-long, 24hr relay-style run from Johannesburg to Cape Town (1520km), with 36 MADsters, who will embrace this adventure-for-a-cause in 2023.
The relay aspect of the event is sectioned into 85km shifts, which take around 9 hours each. There are 18 shifts in total over the week. Each shift is made up of a group of 6 runners, completing a minimum of 20km each, during each shift at an average pace of 6 minutes and 30 seconds. After each shift (every 85km), a shuttle vehicle will meet the runners on the road for a changeover. A changeover is where the next group of runners will begin their 85km shift, right where the previous shift finished. The retiring runners are then shuttled back to base camp for a rub-down, shower, food and rest before leaving for their next shift which could be in 8, 16 or 24 hours time (this entire process will be explained to you in full should you make the team). Rinse and repeat for one whole week!

It is very important to us that you, as a hopeful team member, understand that this is NOT a running event – even if that sounds weird…you will come to understand 🙂 The goal of each team member is to use this beautiful journey across SA as an opportunity to raise as many funds as possible for the MAD Leadership Foundation.*
Our fundraising goal for 2023 is
Together we can do it!
