Taking on the Hillary Trail to raise money for the Chiropractic Centre for Research, Andre Barclay, Tim Leeming, and Sindre Stoten ran the gruelling 77-kilometre course on 27 September 2015.
With a start time of 5:55 in the morning, the New Zealand College of Chiropractic (NZCC) students finished the run after nine checkpoints at 8:43 in the evening. A total of 14 hours and 47 minutes.
Other students from the College participated both in the run and as supporters. According to Tim, they were only on their own in the first leg, as the rest of the time they had runners with them (Dylan Jones, Jake Long, Jens Duhr, Brock Jaeb, Julie Carpenter, and some others ran between 10 and 25km). A few runners put in a big effort running 38, 44, and 50+ km (like Aaron's dad).
The amazing supporters also drove from check point to check point (nine all in all) to not only cheer the boys on, but to help ensure they had the water and safety measures in place.
