What is RunFest? RunFest is New Zealand’s only running conference. It’s a conference you’ll actually want to come to! Featuring Jonathan Wyatt, Sally McRae, Barefoot Ted, and Billy Yang, and loaded with inspiring talks, practical workshops, and trail running movies, RunFest will get your running to another level. You’ll get to hang out with some of the biggest names in the New Zealand and international trail running scene, as well as local heroes and fellow trail runners. You’ll leave RunFest a better runner – inspired, educated, entertained, and with a bunch of new running friends and connections. http://runfest.org.nz/ http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/AK1710/S00106/running-celebrities-coming-to-wellington.htm Running celebrities coming to Wellington Scoop.co.nz (press release) Among them will be Barefoot Ted, best known for his barefoot running adventures in Christopher McDougall's best-selling book Born to Run.
