‘Crazy’ Dave Busschau decided to and is currently running from Nelspruit in the Mpumalanga Province in South Africa to Cape Town in the Western Cape Province for charity.

The 49-year-old marathon runner and business owner is planning on donating all the proceeds that he receives to the underprivileged and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Dave started his mission on 1 September and is planning on completing this ‘monster of a marathon’ before he turns 50 on 16 October 2018.

Dave is currently running 40 to 50 km per day. The stretch from Nelspruit to Cape Town is reportedly a whopping 1900 km, with Dave planning on finishing the marathon in a mere 45 days.

According to the ‘Run Like Crazy Dave’ Facebook Page, he has already clocked in 900 km and more. On 19 September Dave crossed over the Orange River at the Van der Kloof dam from the Free State to the Northern Cape.

According to the website, Run Like Crazy, Dave is a passionate runner who enjoys pushing the limits while he’s at it.

As a member of the Nelspruit Marathon Club for over 20 years, Dave says that, to him, running is a form of meditation and while running not only calms his mind, it’s also a way for him to meet new people and make new friends.

“One of the best things about running is that everyone is equal while they are putting the kilometers behind them. It’s all about you, your mind, your body and your fellow travelers as you push yourself and each other to achieve even greater distances than you imagined possible”, said Dave.
