Ep112 - Wayne Larden - Sydney Running Festival Race Director

August 18, 2022

The World Marathon Majors are coming to Sydney!

In Ep112 Wolf and Haddy talk to Sydney Running Festival Race Director, Wayne Larden (2:16 Marathon guy!) and find out the process to make the Sydney Marathon the next official World Major and join the ranks of London, New York & Berlin.

We discuss the success of the Sydney Running Festival since Wayne took over in 2005 and the enormous logistical operation behind shutting down the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and putting on a Gold Label event for over 40000 runners. Wayne details the massive financial benefit to Australia of hosting a World Major event and how all Aussies and runners can get behind it. He also lets us know about the serious A-list runners heading out for this years race. It's gonna be fast!

Wayne is also heavily involved in bringing the World Cross Country to Australia next year and we get some details on what promises to be an incredible event. Looking forward to Mt Panorama 2023!

The shiny new Bondi to Manly Ultra is also on Wayne's books so plenty of chat for the Ultra frothers too!

Sean 'The Godfather' Tindale pops in to review the Hoka Tecton X with Wolf.
