Kiwi marketing professor to take on 24 hour run


New Zealand ultra-marathon runner and marketing professor Nick Ashill is taking on an epic challenge to support the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation’s Breathe Better September campaign.

He’s hitting the streets of our capital city Wellington and running non-stop for 24 hours from 9am this Friday morning

Nick says, "I've signed up to become a Better Breathing Hero because I want to make a difference to the 700,000 Kiwis with respiratory disease.

"I have a personal connection to respiratory disease, having lost my mum to pulmonary fibrosis in 2017. I also LOVE running, and am looking forward to the physical challenge of running non-stop for a day.”
