Tourism At Speed

New Zealand’s newest cross-country Te Araroa Trail is the perfect challenge for British ultrarunner Jez Bragg, 31, who plans to run the track – from Cape Reinga to Bluff – in 50 days. Bragg began the expedition on 11 December and is on track to complete the crossing in his set goal. He is not the first person to run the full length of the trail. On 17 December 2012, less than a week after Bragg set off, 34-year-old Australian Richard Bowles completed the trail in 62 days. Still, Bragg is pushing to be the fastest man on the route. “There is no better way to explore a country like New Zealand with such outstanding natural beauty than to do it by foot,” Bragg says.
