Andrius Ramonas

Ultra Trail Runner

Andrius Ramonas is one of New Zealand’s most recognisable names in extreme backcountry running, with an impressive medal haul to boot, thanks to a multitude of national and international titles. Two weeks after landing in New Zealand from Lithuania, Andrius impressively won his first title in New Zealand, the Tarawera Marathon 50km Trail. Andrius uses ultra distance running to assist with his studies in exercise physiology, in which he is currently completing his PhD.
