The Long­est Yards

Men's Health (South Africa) - - PROMOTION -

Gaven Sin­clair is hit­ting the road for two rea­sons: first, he wants to raise aware­ness and fund­ing for Miss­ing Chil­dren South Africa. And sec­ond, he wants to make Frodo and Sam’s jaunt to Mt. Doom look like a lazy Sun­day stroll. This avid run­ner is set to cover ex­actly 5528.3km of lo­cal and for­eign roads, trails, and hos­tile ter­rain as he jogs across five dif­fer­ent coun­tries. In to­tal, it will take him 210 days to com­plete the chal­lenge, and he’s do­ing it com­pletely solo. His route will take him from SA’s East coast through Mozam­bique, past Zim, into Namibia and through to the fin­ish line at the V&A Water­front in Cape Town. “I love find­ing places that make me re­alise how tiny I am, how small my prob­lems re­ally are,” says Gaven. Mes­sage MCSA to 41006 to do­nate R25 to Miss­ing Chil­dren South Africa, and sup­port Gaven’s jour­ney.
