50 MARATHONS - 50 PEAKS - 50 DAYS The most audacious feat of endurance ever attempted on New Zealand soil
FIFTY – The Movie follows Mal Law’s bold attempt to run 50 mountain marathons over 50 peaks in just 50 days, all around New Zealand, in order to raise an enormous amount of money for the Mental Health Foundation.
The film is every bit as unique and ambitious as the adventure it traces. It’s about so much more than just stunning mountain scenery and awesome trail running. It’s also about the ‘power of purpose’ and what is possible when thousands of people get together behind one man to help achieve something truly and utterly remarkable.

“FIFTY – The Movie will inspire the armchair athlete in all of us to think outside the box, push boundaries and think what if?”
