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, mountain biking and stand up paddling, each of which take 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.
Jamie's autobiography 'Determination' tells the gripping story of his personal transformation from a substance-abusing teenager into an elite athlete taking on world records and the defining moments that have shaped his journey of evolution. This book takes you behind the scenes of his extreme endurance feats and into the mind of an athlete who has achieved what is often considered to be humanly impossible. Jamie also shares the secrets of accessing superhuman strength and how this can be applied to achieve success in sport, business and everyday life.
‘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 to believe in themselves and face the giants in their lives.
