The Arthur Lydiard Legend Events proudly supported by HOKA ONE ONE® are all set to take place on Saturday September 13th, 2014.
The Arthur Lydiard Legend events were created in conjunction with the master coach himself, on courses that have produced our most famous and successful Olympic athletes, the likes of Peter Snell, Murray Halberg, Barry Magee, Bill Bailey and many others…

What is ultra running, you ask? Running over hot coals? Evading a swarm of angry hornets? Dodging a charging moose? Sometimes, actually.
“Ultra running” is a blanket term for covering extreme distances without the assistance of a bike or skis. Although there are usually few additional rules. Ultra runners don’t have to sustain a running pace for the entire duration of events. They often walk or even sleep.
