Join the second annual African Centurion Walk at the world renown Robben Island. As with last year’s event, on 21 October 2017, you’ll join a band of walkers from across the world as they walk 100 miles in 24 hours on the South African Alcatraz of Robben Island – the infamous prison for anti-apartheid activists. Go the full grueling distance by yourself and you’ll be awarded a never-to-be-repeated Centurion walker number that’ll stay yours for life.
Join the Island Experience
Set on Robben Island, the African Centurion is a rich, affecting journey through the most famous exemplar of South Africa’s brutal yet triumphant recent history.
It all starts the moment you set foot on the ferry to the island: on arrival, you’ll get a welcome pack and a tour of the infamous prison complex before the walk gets going at 12 pm. Twenty-four hours of walking will take you through an incredibly rare opportunity to spend a night on the island. When the ferry makes for Cape Town at 2 pm the next day, you’ll leave knowing you were part of something truly special.
The event extends far beyond the walk, too, with massage stations, food, entertainment and way more to keep supporters feeling like the honoured guests they are.
