Lisa Tamati

From the 31st of October through to the 2nd of December New Zealand’s crazy person elite ultramarathon runner, Lisa Tamati, will be running the length of New Zealand to raise money for CanTeen and CureKids.

She will be running approximately 2,200km in 33 days or the equivalent of 52 marathons, from Bluff to Cape Reinga.

On the 13th November (day 14 of the run) Lisa will be running from Taimate  (just north of Ward) to Picton – 72km in all for the day. She will be stopping in at Paper Plus in the Forum to sign copies of her book, Running Hot.

This may be an opportunity to go for a lunchtime run with Lisa. I’ll check details with her manager and update this post when I hear more.
