A super well orgainised event - with great atmosphere before during and after - real support from all runners, watchers and volunteers. This years event was taken out by a super fast Jim Walmsley in record time - for us mortals (me) started in the dark and 15 hours later finished in the dark with a real sense of achievement - scenery superb, but overall the aid stations (11 of them in the 102km course) were exceptional - loved this run

An incredibly scenic course for the first 60km, followed by lots of forest running for the final 40km. The aid stations are exceptional, the best I've seen in any races. The whole race is an event and well worth a trip to NZ to experience.

A tough as hell course in a beautiful setting with well organised, and mindblowing aid stations. Highly recommended, and worth the trip to NZ for
