Malcolm Law was born in 1960 near Liverpool, England. After scraping through school he studied beer drinking at the University of Sheffield and somehow managed to fluke a BSc. in Geography. He spent several years working in London before moving to New Zealand in 1987, ostensibly to further his career in market research but in truth to pursue his love affair with wild places.

Since arriving in his adopted homeland he has explored the length and breadth of the country on foot, on wheels and in kayaks. He is the man behind Running Wild NZ (www.runningwildnz.com) – a community that encourages runners of all levels to explore the beautiful trails in New Zealand.

He lives in Auckland with his wife Sally and son Beinn.
