MAD2Run is an epic 8-day long, 24hr relay-style run from Johannesburg to Cape Town (1500km), with 36 MADsters, who will embrace this 2021 adventure. The dates for this adventures are: 8th-15th October 2021, with the CT Marathon on the 17th October.
The relay aspect of the event is sectioned into 8 hour, 80km shifts. There are 20 shifts in total over the week. Each shift is made up of a group of six runners, completing roughly 20km during each shift at an average pace of 6 minutes and 30 seconds. Once each shift is complete (after each 80km), a shuttle vehicle will meet the runners on the road for a changover. A changeover is where the next group of runners will begin their 80km, 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!
