Back at the start of February ultrarunner Jez Bragg completed his audacious attempt to run along the length of Te Araroa trail in New Zealand, crossing that country north-to-south on foot. Along the way he covered over 3054 km (1898 miles) in some of the most scenic backcountry found anywhere on the planet. It was a long, grueling run that took 53 days, 9 hours to complete, which was a new record but just off his goal of finishing in 50 days even. In the video below we learn exactly why Jez missed his target (hint: three days in bed sick doesn’t help!) and what it was like for him out on trail for all that time.
