  What is KAEM ?

The Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon (KAEM) is an adventurous and extreme, multi-stage marathon held annually in October in the breath-taking landscape of South Africa’s “Green Kalahari”.  Founded in the year 2000, KAEM is now in its 18th year.

This extreme sports event is a 7 day, 6 stage, self-sufficient foot race, covering an approximate total distance of 250km. Known as the ‘Big Daddy’ in the South African running fraternity, KAEM is one of the most respected extreme multi-stage marathons on the International Trail Running calendar.


KAEM takes place in the Kalahari Desert in the proximity of the Augrabies Falls on the Orange River. The route traverses the Augrabies Falls National Park, Daberas as well as private farmlands. This unique and contrasting environment with average day temperatures reaching in excess of 40 degrees Celsius and dropping to below 5 degrees Celsius at night presents a daunting challenge to the extreme athlete and determined adventurer alike.



  • Registration : 2000 euros/ person
  • Equipment (compulsory equipment with survival gear): 500 euros /person
  • Food for the race (7 days) : 400 euros/ person
  • Transportation : 1000 euros /person

Budget is roughly 4000 euros /person.

Why you should support me ?

  • I promise to promote the supporters during my preparation and the race by different actions:
    • wear the supporters sign on my race clothes;
    • perform a video with supporters promotion;
    • write articles of the different race stages.
  • The satisfaction of participating in a world-renowned course while helping ecological and humanitarian actions (construction of a school in Uganda)
  • A sum of 1500 euros is targeted: one part (500 euros ) for the race equipment and the other (1000 euros) will be paid to the school construction Uganda.


An objective of 1500 euros has been fixed but given the task scale , we hope that the mobilization will be great and we dream of reaching 200% and why not the 300%!
To live a race in an hostile environment and to open the school paths: these will be the objectives.
