Done and dusted - 323km over 7 days in 41 hours
Thank you all for your support to help restore sight to needlessly blind people.
It was a long week with lot's of ups and downs (literally and emotionally)
But it was worth every minute and km. Enjoy the read
Alps to Ocean
All down hill, right?
think again - that peak half way through is the finish of the 89km stage - love to finish on a high
1 week to go
After almost 10,000 km of training and 1,000 hours running I am as ready as I can be. This weekend it is packing food (2,200 calories per day) so lot's of Nutella of course :-) plus sleeping bag, mat, some survival gear. A couple of last leisurly runs to keep the nerves calm over the weekend and off we go.

330km from Alps to the Ocean
On Saturday, 23 February, I will be at the start of an epic 200 miles / 330 km race over 7 days covering halfway across New Zealand's South Island.
Lot's and lot's of time to think during those 6,7 or 8 hours runs.
Your support to help restore sight by donating to The Fred Hollows Foundation not only will encourage me to keep running but it will change lives for ever.
My goal of $2,000 is a reflection of the 200 miles I will be racing in New Zealand end of this month.
