72 Half Marathons in 72 days

Personal message

Please support Morné in his quest for a world record by running 72 Half Marathons in 72 Days on a treadmill in health clubs in different parts of South Africa. This is to create awareness for people suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. With his previous challenge in 2017 Morné successfully finished 31 consecutive marathons (42,2km) in 31 days for the same cause.

His message is to live life with NO REGRETS. Life is short, be thankful for what you have. You cannot change yesterday, tomorrow is not a given... Make the best of today. MND is a death sentence and not many people understand how devastating it is for patients and their loved ones. Anybody can get it. Little support it and know about it...

The money will go towards petrol, accommodation, food, physio, supplements and other expenses for himself and the team during his 72 challenge. Guinness World Record will also be paid to have their officials present to declare this an official world record. Morne will start on 15 July 2019 with his attempt.
