Jup Brown, a 38yr old plumber from Wanaka, is running over a marathon a day up the length of New Zealand for 69 days - all in the name of the Stroke Foundation.

This is the fifth update from Picton where Jup has just completed running two out of the three islands in the challenge. He's amped to be halfway distence wise.
