#CrazyDoesNZ Tarawera Ultramarathon Facebook Competition

November 21, 2014

CONGRATULATIONS TO TONI GRACIA! Winner of the discounted entry into the SOLD OUT Tarawera Ultra Marathon 2015.

We all know ultra-runners are a crazy bunch, and we here at Hoka One One New Zealand think this is something that should be celebrated. After all, crazy does!

For your chance to win a discounted entry into the SOLD OUT Tarawera Ultra Marathon 2015 and a Hoka One One prize-pack, we want you to tell us what has been your craziest training day?
Was it the time, when - not wanting to miss a training session – you ventured out in torrential rain only to find yourself cut-off by a rapidly rising river or the time you ran into a rampaging pack of geese on the Northern Tarawera Track?
Already got yourself an entry into the Tarawera Ultra? Not to worry, you can instead choose the option of a Marmot Jacket of equal value in addition to the Hoka One One prize-pack.
