Trans-tasman running event to raise awareness of marine ecosystem threats

From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 25 July 2022

Over 100,000 runners in both Australia and New Zealand will come together this October for the world's first simultaneous event of its size.

It's called run4reef, and it hopes to promote climate action to protect the Great Barrier Reef and Aotearoa's own native marine ecosystems.

 Wellington event manager Bengy Barsanti talks to Jesse.
