AFRICAN

CENTURION

Cultivating a healthy mind in a healthy body

Walk 100 miles in 24 hours

An avid sportsman, particularly fond of walking himself, founder Nour Addine spearheaded the launch of the first ever African Centurion Walk  in 2016 on the infamous Robben Island. This is the very same place where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years before being emancipated and becoming the first black president of South Africa.

"Walking is the one sport any able-bodied person can do: we are designed to walk."
