Go Yuki!

This will be Queenstown Staff member, Yuki’s first ever Luxmore Grunt mountain run. With a 8.2km climb to the highest point of the Kepler Track, the Luxmore Hut check point at 1085m, the run is fittingly named.

Yuki will run the 27km mountain race, held on the first section of the Kepler Track in Te Anau. She will leave the start line taking an easy 5.6km to Brod Bay which will then turn to a steady, well graded 8.2km climb to the Luxmore Hut. From there Yuki will return back down the same track to the finish line.

Yuki has been training hard in preparation for this event, running  Ben Lomond with her Husband, Tsukasa as her personal trainer and great motivator, some say that he is the Japanese James Bond……..
