South African ultra-endurance athlete Jamie Marais made history by becoming the first and only known person to speed-summit Cape Town's iconic Table Mountain twenty-two times in twenty-eight hours over two days.
Climbing more than sixteen thousand vertical meters - almost twice the height of Everest - his mission was to raise support for the Sabrina Foundation who care for children with special needs and to inspire people to realise that nothing we are facing is too big to overcome.
This was the first in an ongoing series of solo extreme-endurance challenges across various sporting disciplines including vertical running and mountain biking, with each challenge taking place in a dangerous setting in untamed Africa with intensely challenging physical objectives and natural threats including unpredictable weather, brutal mountain passes and dangerous wildlife.
‘Stress and depression are among the leading causes of death, but exercise is one of the simplest and most effective cures there is.
Exercise can literally save your life.’
Jamie believes that ‘the body follows where the mind leads’ and inspires people through taking on extreme challenges to believe in
themselves and face the giants in their lives.
