South Africa’s Marathon Running Connoisseur

I am Stuart Mann
  • Professional Lean-Agile Coach and Unprofessional Athlete (and like writing about both).
  • Compulsive marathon runner (over 240 marathons and ultras completed).
  • Experienced joker and mischief maker.
  • Father (2 gorgeous girls), husband (1 gorgeous wife) and Trainee Feminist.

Current Running Goal: Complete every marathon and ultra in South Africa

Previous Goal (Completed April 2018): #100UniqueMarathons

  1. Promote great marathons and running tourism to South African runners.
  2. Promote South Africa as the marathon running destination of choice for International runners.
  3. Run as many marathons as I can and share the experience with a humorous report that brings out the “personality” of the race.
  4. Share great running stories.
Pipe Dream (some people call this a vision): Earn enough blog readers and social media followers to:
  1. Have travel costs covered to run marathons and write about the experience (selfish goal).
  2. Use as a platform to help raised awareness for inspirational charities and runners (altruistic goal)

International runners: If you’re planning to visit South Africa and want info on SA marathons, I’m happy to answer your questions. There are great marathon options all year round – I’ve run most of them and would love to help you run a marathon in our beautiful country.
