We’ve been back in SA since December, and our adventure feet are already itching. We were approached by our good friend Davey to join in and probably agreed before we had even thought about it. The best part? You’re also welcome to join, either running or cycling (we’re cycling), for any length of time you want. It’s going to be awesome.
Project 1000 is an ultra-marathon adventure series, covering 1000 km per country, dedicated towards highlighting the critically endangered species of each country, the causes behind each species demise & the possible solutions to bring each species back from decline.
Project 1000: South Africa will have the team adventure travelling from Upington towards Cape Town. Project 1000 is a collective effort, open for anyone and everyone to join in at any point of the adventure, choosing to run or cycle. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
