Technical trail descents will naturally slow you down and mean you take shorter steps

Here is our New Zealand 2017 adventure in pictures. New Zealand really is a photographers dream, I couldn’t quite believe just how diverse and colourful the landscapes are. If only we had more time to see the areas we missed!

If you missed our running video shot in Abel Tasman, then be sure to check it out!

Thank You

    Welp. Looks like this is our next destination after our running trip to Iceland! Loved all the shots 💚

    • Hey Cat! Thank you!!

      It was such an amazing trip! Mind you, I’ve heard only great things about Iceland too, that will be amazing! Its on our list 🙂

      • Cat Ogle

        Well if you have any suggestions and must dos let me know!

        • Two definite must do’s for a trail runner:

          1.) Run the Abel Tasman Coastal Track http://www.trailandkale.com/adventures/running-abel-tasman/ ( you can even take a Kayak Tour out to the end of the track, and then run back along the track ) – We just did a separate Kayak Tour, and ran on another day though.

          2.) Run the Routeburn Track on the South Island – video coming soon!! It has to be one of the most beautiful runs we have ever done. It’s 32km long and about 1400m of ascent. Hikers tend to take 2 days walking it, but trail runners will take it on in a day. Here is my Strava activity if you would like to see the route:

          Hope this helps a bit 🙂
