7in7 Community Challenge

Team Beastie’s 7in7 Challenge is running 7 ultra-marathon distances in 7 days. This adaptive, assisted wheelchair team will run 6 ultra-marathon distances between Johannesburg and Durban, and will finish with the Comrades Marathon on 9 June. They first did this in 2023 and this year have expanded the 7in7 Challenge to include YOU!

What will your 7in7 Challenge be? You can choose anything – running, swimming, walking, reading, knitting, self-care, whatever you find challenging. Sign up for the Community Challenge so that while Team Beastie is taking to the road, you’ll be conquering your challenge too, with the support of the whole 7in7 Community!

Your entry fee is supporting inclusive education and adaptive road running. Through the 7in7 Community Challenge, we’re advocating for inclusion and equal opportunities for disabled children in South Africa.

What is 7in7

Starting on 3 June 2024, Team Beastie will take on the equivalent of 6 ultra-marathons over 6 days between Johannesburg and Durban. On day 7 they will take part in the Comrades Marathon on 9 June 2024.

Team Beastie represents how important it is to recognise the inherent value and ability each individual has in life, and runs with the belief that the road is for all of us; it’s a better place to be when everyone is included.
