7 DAY STAGED SELF-SUFFICIENT 250KM
6 - 16 October
The Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon (KAEM) is an iconic staged self-sufficient 250km desert foot race, well-known as the “Big Daddy” in trail and desert running circles across the world. Taking place in the Kalahari Desert with the route covering the Augrabies Falls National Park and private farmlands, participants get the opportunity to run in the footsteps of the ancient Bushmen, while enjoying sightings of wildlife. The varied terrain includes rocky outcrops, sandy riverbeds, boulder-strewn koppies and vast outstretched grasslands.
Each year this desert race attracts not only elite athletes, but also slow runners and adventure hikers. As much as this event is a challenge, both physically and mentally and demands proper preparation, it is THE DESERT FOOT RACE that gives back just as much in the form of soul-fulfilling adventure!
