MADAGASCAR TEAM CHALLENGE 2021- RUN TO MADAGASCAR!

Do you love running? Do you want to help make a difference? Why not join MfM’s Madagascar Team Challenge 2021?

We are looking for keen runners to run the 5580 mile distance from the UK to Madagascar.  That’s a long way, but don’t worry, you don’t have to run the whole distance yourself!  Whatever your level, we’d love you to get sponsored to run part of the way.

What to do:

  • Register with us and let us know how far you plan to run

  • Download a sponsorship form and start getting sponsors

  • Register/Record all your training and race miles with MfM

LET’S START CLOCKING UP THOSE MILES IN 2021 AND SEE HOW FAST WE CAN MAKE IT TO MADAGASCAR!

You can visit our leaderboard and progress tracker to see how far we have progressed.
