A few guest post- one on race records and the other on living it up on the trails of the South Island over the summer, another “Top Town” post and Xterra Waihi reports.

Aussie Richard Bowers is 3 days into becoming the first person to run Te Araroa (yeah, an Aussie is gonna do it first! If you don’t like it then you better pull finger and run him down asap!) Below is a little video from day 1. Should be epic to follow!


Sorry this is short, but stay tuned for a few good posts later in the week!

A Backcountry Running Community for New Zealand trail, mountain and ultra runners- We want this to be the place you come for all things trail running including race previews and reports, interviews with New Zealand runners and hopefully a whole lot more! Our aim is to provide as much original content- previews/reports/interviews on New Zealand trail, mountain and ultra races. We can't be everywhere- so feel free to get in touch if you have the scoop on a race or event.
