At its soul, the Ned Kelly Chase is a 100km test of physical endurance. It's a battle of willpower; of grit and determination. It requires the mind and the body to rise above the adversity thrust upon them, and to find harmony in each other in order to triumph. It requires something special.
Join Greta, Chris & other Rejoovers at these upcoming running events. We hope to see you there!
