Mal Law who ran seven major walks in 7 days back in 2009 (7in7) all for charity raising over $300k is back, this time hitting the trails with a much bigger challenge, all for Mental Health Foundation of NZ.  Today 54 year old Law knocked off the first of his 50 off-road marathons in 50 days at the Tarawera Ultra in Rotorua

“I plan to climb 50 peaks and run 50 off-road marathons. There will be no rest days and very little time to recover from one grueling day to the next. It’s big. It’s scary. But most of all, it’s massively exciting!” commented Law and looking at Law after today’s Tarawera he’s held up well day one done, just forty nine to go.
