Nothing is Impossible – Great Wall of China Run
Capetonian Braam Malherbe’s adventures began as a young boy when he would camp alone on the slopes of Table Mountain for the night. Fast forward to 2006 when he and fellow adventurer David Grier set off for China in a bid to traverse the entire length of the Great Wall of China – the first people in the world to do so. They ran the equivalent of a marathon a day for 98 days to complete the 4,218km wall from start to finish. Experts, such as Dr Tim Noakes, said it was an impossible feat, they proved otherwise. Listen to Braam’s story and how it shaped his life’s.

Beyond Boundaries – Centenary Race to the South Pole
In 2011, together with Peter van Kets, Braam Malherbe undertook the ultimate extreme endurance expedition to represent South Africa in a Scott/Amundsen centenary race to the South Pole. Up against six nations, this re-enactment of the original 1910 ‘Race to the Pole’ took place in one of the coldest, driest and highest deserts on the planet. Unassisted and pulling sleds of 80kg’s, they covered a race distance of 768km plus a 120km acclimatisation trek, at a numbing average temperature of -40°C. They navigated white-outs, blinding storms and crevasse fields, finally assisting the British team to reach the Pole by carrying some of their weight. This is a story of extreme hardship, heroism and friendship at the bottom of the world.
Price: R255pp – includes dinner buffet in Reubens afterwards
