360° GEO - Report was there observing preparations for New Zealand's Ultramarathon and experienced first hand how a former theft still continues to rile New Zealanders and sets various tribes against each other.

A Maori legend dictates the course of the Ultramarathon. It tells the story of a boy who once lived with his tribe on the New Zealand coast. One day his mother asked him to search for some kumaras, or sweet potatoes, for a meal. Instead of digging for them, he decided to steal some from the neighboring tribe. Till this day, runners follow in his footsteps along the coastline - during New Zealand's most famous marathon. 55 year-old Lilac Fley is an athlete and many times winner of the extreme race.
