“Ballarat is the mecca of distance running in Australia and Collis is a proud Ballarat boy, it’s a great opportunity for people who love running to get down on a Sunday afternoon, enjoy a beer with like-minded people and hear some great stories from one of the best distance runners Australia has ever produced“, said Julian Spence who co-hosts the podcast with Threlfall and owns The Running Company Ballarat.
“Having the afternoon linked with the Nike Pegasus 35 launch is also exciting, it’s a great shoe and we’ll be giving away a few free pairs on the day with some other Nike giveaways. We love the support we get from our listeners and want to provide them with a great experience at this event”, Spence concludes.
