Waiuku’s Quinn Gardiner-Hall has completed his mission. On Saturday 11 March, Quinn reached his goal of running four half marathons, in four counties, before he turned 12.
As he completed the Antarctica Half Marathon, Quinn also set a new record as the youngest ever competitor in the world to run a half marathon in Antarctica.
“Man I was tired. I had gone as fast as I could as I wanted to do my best and had stayed out with most of the front pack. It paid off as I was the first male passenger from all the ships to cross the finish line. My time was 2hrs 10 mins.”
Well done, Quinn! We look forward to hearing all about your travels when you return home.
