In 2006 Braam, together with a running partner, accomplished a world first by running 2, 610 miles     (4, 218 kms) along the entire length of the Great Wall of China in single attempt. This translated into running an average of more than a full marathon a day for 98 days.

Professor Tim Noakes deemed the expedition ‘physically impossible’. After the run, he wrote in the forward of Braam’s book, ‘The Great Run’;  “if the mind can be convinced of the value of the task, there is little that is impossible”.
