Fastest Known Times for Te AraroaWalking the length of NZ is a lifetime achievement. But some people prefer to run.
Last summer Lucy Clark and George Henderson set the fastest known times for Te Araroa. Henderson completed the entire trail in 49 days 14 hours and 27 minutes and Clark in 66 days 7 hours and 8 minutes.
The trail is a tough journey traversing 3000km across all types of terrain. Running the whole trail is a massive test of fitness, mental fortitude and a certain amount of luck.
Luckily for us, Clark and Henderson have documented their adventures. Their respective achievements make for inspiring reads.
