Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has done Old Ghost Ultra 85k in NZ. Running it in late February and curious to see what people thought of it and how it compares to any Oz races especially UTA and GNW.

Cheers,
Grahame

Successfully completed Old Ghost Ultra in 15.5 hrs. Very runnable although we hiked a fair bit and just kept under cutoffs. Amazing scenery in the high NZ mountains and all trail, no road at all. Very rough and rocky underfoot which took it's toll on the feet. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Cheers,
Grahame
