Teen plans to run the length of NZ
Mon, 30 Jul 2012 8:19a.m.
Running a marathon would be quite a feat for most people, but one Lower Hutt teenager has lost count of how many she has run over the past few months.
Eighteen-year-old Victoria Taylor is running up to 200km a week for a gruelling challenge - she wants to run the length of the country.
Watch the video for Jerram Watts' full report.
Taylor is one month out from her big run and needs all the support she can get.
Her support crew of two needs to be increased to four - she needs one general helper along the route, and one person to run with her for mental/moral support during different legs.
