Ultra-runner Jon Nabbs on his next mission: NZ in 27 days

From Nine To Noon, 9:40 am on 13 May 2024

After running 7,500km across Canada in 305 days Jon Nabbs gave himself a few months to rest. He's back in New Zealand and about to embark upon another ultra-marathon effort. The plan this time? Run the length of New Zealand while raising awareness - and $250,000 - for child cancer. Oh, and set a Guinness World Record.

Jon set off from Bluff this morning with an aim of making it to Cape Reinga in the next 27 days. You can follow Jon on his journey here and make a donation here.
