Run Across Haiti
Further tells the story of the first organized, ultra-marathon spanning across the entire length of Haiti. Starting in Cap-Haitien and ending in Jacmel, the run covers 386km over 8 days. The goal was to raise $125,000 but wrapped up the campaign having raised $137,500. Run Across Haiti (#RunAcrossHaiti) objective is to show the world that Haiti is not a place to be dreaded, not a place to be feel sorry for, and not a place to overlook.
It’s one of the hardest adventure runs in the world
A hefty portion of the 20 runners endeavouring the enormous run had never finished a ultra-marathon of this length, let alone in conditions as ruthless as ones they’d face in Haiti. Only seven of the twenty runners managed to make it to Jacmel on the 8th day. It is a dangerous run where you have to dodge cars, motorcycles, people, dogs and polluted streets.
