It's Cape Reinga or bust for long distance runner Curly Jacobs, who set out in the early hours of this morning to run the length of New Zealand.

The Cambridge-based 44 year old plans to break a record set by Siggy Bauer in the 1970s who ran from Bluff to Cape Reinga in 18 days and 9 hours. He has a live link to Garmin to track his progress, and took a break between marathons to chat to Kathryn.
