Emelia On The Road

It has all started this morning!

By Roger Childs

Emelia at Kaka Point in Southland yesterday

Emelia Lahti is from Finland and is running the length of New Zealand to raise awareness about domestic violence.

In our story on January 15 we had her starting at Cape Reinga. To set the record straight, it is the other way round! She’ll be on the road now heading north from Bluff.

She hopes to do 50 ultra marathons in 50 days! It’s a big ask, however she is a very determined young woman!

We’ll keep you posted!
