After 53 days 9 hours and 3,054 km of running, Jez Bragg conquered the Te Araroa trail – a new route that covers the length of New Zealand.

Bragg, who is a former winner of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, managed to complete the epic journey despite suffering from giardia, a parasite that attacks the intestinal system.

In this video he reflects on his journey. “I’m just so proud of that because, it was bold, and I did pull it off. And that’s cool,” he said.
