The Longest Yards
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.
