When Matt Akehurst decided to get fit he hit the trail in a big way. Running ultra-marathons until his body said no more.
Now he keeps to a four-kilometre lap near his home at The Pines Beach, 20 minutes north of Christchurch.
Every day he goes out he’s certain of seeing one thing – rubbish, And about 18 months ago enough, was enough.
Resurrecting an old school beg, he now completes his workout with a sack of trash.
He’s got a goal, to pick up 7,000 pieces in seventy days.
Watch as Hayden Jones shows how easy that challenge was.
