The most audacious feat of endurance ever attempted on New Zealand soil!

7th Feb to 28th March 2015

In its scale and ambition the Partners Life High Five-0 Challenge is both enormous and unprecedented - nothing quite like it has ever been attempted anywhere in the world.

It will be a true odyssey, played out over the length and breadth of one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. It will be a celebration of many things, not least New Zealand's wild places, the pastimes of peak bagging & trail running, camaraderie between adventurous people, and the generosity of the human spirit. But more than anything this Challenge exists to bring the issues surrounding mental health out of the shadows and into the limelight.

Our most important goal of all is to raise at least $250,000 for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

The Challenge

50 Peaks, 50 Marathons, 50 Days

The Challenge is the brainchild of one man - Mal Law - who lives for taking on big outdoors adventures for causes that he is passionate about. The concept is borne out of Mal's lifelong love affair with mountains & wild places, and his more recent love affair with long-distance trail running.

Mal intends to complete 50 days of back-to-back hard yakka, climbing to the summit of 50 peaks while running the equivalent of 50 marathons over predominantly rough, tough backcountry trails. Over the 50 days he will need to ascend more than 100,000m; the equivalent of doing Mt. Everest from sea level almost 12 times!

But Mal doesn't intend to do this alone and every day he will be joined by a fresh band of support runners who will share in the adventure and help raise funds for a very worthy cause.
