Trans-Kalahari Adventure Run 1000km

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010


The team of three runners, Jukka Viljanen-Kirsi Montonen-Greg Maud, plans to run a demanding 1,000 km route across Kalahari, covering approximately 50 km per day over 20 days. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time that anyone will be running a full crossing of the Kalahari.

Their route will pass through some of the remoter areas of the Kalahari, including passing along the edge of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The adventure will see the team running mainly on remote tracks or small gravel roads, with several 100 km+ sections of loose sand. The remoteness of the route means that the team will be running through areas with substantial wildlife populations, with large predators and snakes being most concerning for the runners!

Running such a long distance over a short period of time will prove a major challenge – both mentally and physically. Each runner will consume between 5,000 and 7,000 Calories each day and cover the distance of almost 24 marathons in just 20 days. will send this exceptional team daily temperature and wind forecasts.
