I am very pleased to present you my Ubuntu Challenge,  is to set the Guinness world record for the first women to run from Alexandria  to Cape Town, South Africa, I will travel 10 or 12 African countries in a total of 13 000km approximately. On my way, I will run a total of 300 Marathons and film the entire journey. I plan to run between 42km - 50km a day. I plan to start my journey on the first of january 2018, and finish next year january 2019.  Parts of the trip will involve history and religious culture whilst the southern section will be dominated by the amazing scenery of wild Africa. That will be one year of amazing running, filming and experiences, that I will be delighted to share with you.. 

I strongly believe in the connection with people. As a human, when we listen others without any judgement, the magic happens. It’s through this connection and the ability to listen that we are able to truly understand each other’s, wherever they are from. Throughout this journey, I am  hoping to meet and interact with locals as frequently as I can. The opportunity to be able to film this journey will be one of the biggest asset of the project that will give us the opportunity to bring awareness of Africa to the spectators. We hope that we will be able to change the prejudices regarding the African culture throughout our journey. I am truly convince that this journey will be a wonderful opportunity for me and also the spectators, to grow or change the way they think, in the same time as I will growth as a runner and also as a human being.

3010km run accross Japan in 72 days  (summer 2016)

In the summer 2016, I ran 3010km in Japan in 72 days, that means one marathon a day consecutively for 72 days. My daughter,  who was 18 years young, accompanied me in Japan with an E-Bicycle, she carried all our luggage (tent, clothes, gear… we were self-supported) on a mini trailer next to the bicycle. My daughter (cycle) . We started at the bottom of Mount Fuji that was an extraordinary place to start. We faced different challenges throughout the journey, but we were always thankful to be in Japan, having this adventure and we cherished every moment where we were. We never ever thought to quit, after just a few weeks, we were both convinced that we could get the 3000km done, nothing could stop us.

During this trip we experienced the generosity and the kindness of the Japanese people. It was so unique to see all the extraordinary human nature of people who offered us their homes so we could rest, some others just stopped with their car to offers us sweets, food and water. We were so inspired by the Japanese people and their country. Even if we did not speak the same language we always found a way to understand each other. I discovered that the Japanese people are so open-minded, they are curios, humble and they do whatever they can to help each other. Even now, I am so amazed by this stunning and unique country. I learnt so much during those 72 days, I am still grateful for all the people I met there and I am so privileged to be able to see the Japanese in their day to day life, they opened their country to us with so much kindness that it’s difficult for me to even describe.

Those 72 days just flew by, before I could realize, I had run more than 2500km and 2800km and finally 30000km...Mission Accomplished! We took 72 days to run 3010 km, that means an average of 42kms a day. I cannot describe the feeling that my daughter and I had when we finished. I was overjoyed to realize that we covered 3 010km by ourselves, that we pushed ourselves beyond the limit that I even thought was possible, I was so happy, but on the other hand I was so sad that this adventure was over already. On the other hands, I was so melancholic to go and left behind Japan this country who gave us so much, and we had learn so much. At this precious moment, I knew that I had to plan right now my Ubunto Africa challenge.

Ultimate goal: Run the planet!

My Ubuntu Challenge (my Africa Run)  is more than a simple project; it’s a way of life! My ultimate goal is to run the planet! To be able to achieve it, I will run one country at a time, one km at a time! After running in Africa, I would love to run any country of the world, I would love to build a worldwide and peaceful community, elaborate different project who are suitable for them, give to each country that I will run with, staying in contact with them, keep then involved on different project that I can create everywhere in the world (school-company- charity …). Secretly I am hoping that we could all together can change the world for good, one km and one movie at a time, together we can achieve it!
