Team '17 is double the MADNESS, with two crews of 12 runners each. The running feat is as brutal as ever with the expectation on each individual runner to complete a minimum of 150km in a week.

The relay takes us through day and night coming to an end at the Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town 7 days after the start in Johannesburg.

These are not professional athletes by any stretch of the imagination, but ordinary South Africans trying to achieve an extraordinary feat.
