Braam Malherbe Plans to Circumnavigate the Tropic of Capricorn for Charity

The Great RunDispatch‘s Siya Miti attended a recent talk by adventurer Braam Malherbe at an Alexander Forbes business breakfast in East London. Malherbe announced his plans to circumnavigate the Tropic of Capricorn on a 14-month trip for charity.

Malherbe’s book, The Great Run, documents his journey running the Great Wall of China – an endeavour that most people thought couldn’t be done.

Extreme adventurer Braam Malherbe has set his sights on circumnavigating the Tropic of Capricorn in a bid to raise awareness for I-Saw, a charity that focuses on the protection of nature for which actor Leonardo DiCaprio is a global ambassador.

Speaking at a recent Alexander Forbes business breakfast at the East London Golf Club, Malherbe, 55, said his upcoming adventure would be a non-motorised 14-month trip starting in 2014 and would combine running in the Australian desert, mountain biking in the Andes in South America and sailing the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
