In spectacular Auckland, Beau Miles presents his latest films with a Q&A. Watch as he goes for a bloody long run and renovates a canoe.

About this event

On his first tour of NZ, Beau Miles will present two brand new films: A Bloody Long Run & Dodgy Canoe Renovation. Both stories are irrelevant, meaningful and cinematic.

Who’s this Beau Miles character? Another bloody Aussie. YouTuber, author of The Backyard Adventurer, wannabe farmer and maker of stuff from other people's junk. He needs to shower more. Known for oddball storytelling that aims to make seemingly mundane or hair brained ideas into something that's enjoyable, challenging and insightful.

Tell me about this bloody long run? In December 2020, Beau Miles attempted to be the first person to run the 220km McMillans Walking track. A crude and overgrown track that was cut into the mountains 165 years earlier by mass-murdering pioneer Angus McMillan.

Why is the canoe renovation dodgy? Getting hold of a banged up old fleet canoe that hasn’t been used for 20 years, Beau gives himself 24 hours to give it a complete overhaul. In between, at the top of the hour, every hour, he sets off in gumboots to run a mile around his paddock.
