Darryl. An Outward Bound Story.

"Teamwork makes the dream work."

Darryl Walker (Millen Baird, Auckland Daze) is a lost soul with a handlebar moustache.  

An aspiring long distance runner, he recently collapsed during the closing stages of the Taranaki Mountain to Surf Marathon and became an internet sensation for all the wrong reasons. Ever since that shameful day, he’s locked himself indoors and surrounded himself with self-help books and motivational CDs. But his self-esteem is fast running out and the pessimistic voice in his head is about as helpful as mudguards on a tortoise. 

The only thing that keeps him running is his obsession to win the next Taranaki marathon. So much so that he has just enrolled in an Outward Bound ‘8 Day Adult Discovery’ course at the famed location of Anakiwa in the South Island.  

In a desperate bid to ‘sharpen the saw’ and silence the ‘minotaur’ in his mind, Darryl is hoping Outward Bound will provide him with the necessary skills to ‘run for his life’ and win back his pride.
