Unogwaja 2012 Documentary

In 2012, we filmed the Unogwaja challenge, an epic journey of 5 individuals as they cycled a gruelling 1677km from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg in just 10 days, followed by running the 98km Comrades Marathon on day 11.

This magical journey of the heart was inspired by Phil Masterton-Smith’s legendary feat in 1933, where, unable to afford the train fare from Cape Town, he cycled to Pietermaritzburg in order to run the marathon. Watch the team push themselves to the limit, both mentally and physically, as we cover the drama, the sweat, and ultimately the journey of the human spirit.
