In the midst of its annual monsoon season in December 2010, saw Grier make the First 500km paddle from Africa across the ocean to Madagascar in 11 days. The island after continuous rain, was now not much drier than the ocean and once there Grier ‘s mammoth run challenged by much flooding, not much drinkable water in addition to massive stretches of uninhabited mountains and jungle.


Running a pace of a marathon a day for 66 days and nearly 2 000 km later Grier finally reached Cape De Ambre on the Northern tip of the island. Riddled with Bilharzias, Dinghy fever and an intestinal infection weighing only 64 Km.
