Tim, Jane and I ran up Mt Fyfe, down to Kowhai Saddle and out Kowhai River on boxing day. Pretty impressive run to say the least! It starts with a bloody steep 4wd track all the way to My Fyfe’s 1601m summit and then gets interesting with a great ridge run along scree and down to Kowhai Saddle.
Its then pretty slow going, rock hoping and a little scrub bashing out to the Kowhai Hut, were we had some really good running before running down the river bed. It was about 5hrs20mins, which included a few stops, mostly to get stones out of our shoes. The run was finished with a swim in the Kowhai River and the day was topped off with a BBQ over looking the Pacific Ocean
