Fiordland '18

Trail Running - Fiordland

Picture this, it’s Saturday morning of the much anticipated OUTC Fiordland trip. A collective unwillingness to get out of sleeping bags and into the cool morning air gradually gives way to a buzz of excitement. Half-awake souls make their way through the maze of tents and tent-flies, crunching the frosty grass of the campsite. Myself and three others of our running group managed to tent close together. However, our last member (let’s call her Katie, as that is her name) is nowhere to be seen. I kindly dispatched my fellow co-leader, Joe, to go and make breakfast (I’m good at this whole delegation thing). While the rest of us (Salomon, Justin and myself) either packed for the days run or went

Lake Wilson - Paradise

We always aimed to make it to the lake. Whether this would actually happen remained at the mercy of the weather, our fitness and my sense of direction (bearing in mind that it’s about as accurate as Happy Feet the emperor penguin’s (RIP)). After a solid 3 hours sleep we were up and ready to go. Little did we know these precious 5am moments would be the last time we’d be dry for the next 12 hours.
