29 November 2008
Heaphy Five-0, Kahurangi National Park

The Heaphy track is the longest of the DOC Great Walks stretching for 50 miles (82km). When this track was first laid over the expansive tussock land and through thick forest, they probably never dreamed that crazy runners would complete it in just over seven hours. The winning time was 7:12:06 and Michael Beaumont crossed the finish line in 4th place in a very fast time of 7:35:28.This was Brian Garmonsway's first ultramarathon event and was leading for much of the race but twisted an ankle three times and eventually had to stop and strap it. He then accidently took the wrong track which meant adding another 3 minutes onto his time, and he finished close on Michael's heels in a time of 7:39:09. By the sound of it, they will definitely be doing this event again.
