In September 2014 the Irene Athletics Club took on a run of 1 250 kilometres, starting in their home city of Centurion and finishing in Laingsburg.

The purpose of the long run was to raise funds for children needing advanced prostheses. Four teams ran 24 hours a day in a relay-format in celebration of the club’s 20th anniversary with other clubs joining in at various points along the route.
