Hawaii isn’t all beaches and coconut mojitos, it’s also the home of one of the world’s toughest multi-day run events. The Mauna to Mauna is a self supported (yep!) 7 day, 6 stage, 250km race across the big island of Hawaii. If that’s not tough enough, competitors had to cross 11 of the 13 climatic regions of the world from rugged lava to sandy beaches and open grassland...There was also a lot of rain.
Kusaga Athletic athlete Phillip Dernee was one of nutters to tackle this event, winning his age group and 10th overall...we asked him what drew him to this monster of an event?

Pip Candrick can laugh about it now but these issues were not the most serious challenges during her first UTA 100. We sat down with her post race.

Bam! 2017 is here and 2016 is relegated to history, a ghost of the past.
I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016, reflecting on the year before the highlights dim in my memory. It was a remarkable year for many reasons, especially in sporting terms. 2016 has been called the year of the underdog, but I think that undermines or disguises what I believe is a subtle change transpiring across the globe.
