Te Araroa is a brand new trail which meanders the full length of New Zealand from the tip of the North Island to the tip of the South Island. It covers a total distance of 3,054 kilometres.

The expedition involves a solo, fastest time attempt running the full Te Araroa trail by Jez Bragg.

In addition to running Jez will also be kayaking across the various water crossings which form part of the official route, including 120 kilometres down the Whanganui River, numerous river estuaries and Lake Wakatipu.

The aim is to complete a 'tip-to-toe' traverse of the whole country, purely under human power.
