Run Run Run: An International Festival of Running 1.0 is founded and curated by Dr Alan Latham and Dr Kai Syng Tan. Alan and Kai are supported by a team consisting of:

Artistic Advisor: Ms Jo Volley

Slade Research Centre Studio Manager: Mr John Bremner

Resident Tweeter: Professor Anson MacKay

Official Timekeeper: Ms Jo Volley (who is also an England Athletics Timekeeper)

Festival Chef: Ms Jo Volley

Forerunners (big-hearted runners who have stepped forward to offer their time and expertise – unpaid – to prepare or take down the show at the space): Dr Carali McCall, Ms Kay Tabernacle, Mr Simon Cook, Ms Grace Barnett, Dr Veronique Chance, Mr Robin Kang, Mr Richard Wright and Dr Andrew Barnfield.

Alan and Kai were also the talented people who came up with the highly-imaginative title of the event, just to be doubly triply quadruply sure what our focus is (so, no, not crawling, not flying, not squatting, not sky-diving, and no, not walking.) Kai also acts as General Runner (Producer-Designer-Accountable-Accountant-Shameless-Publicist-Irritant-Nagger-Email-Spammer-Shopper-Of-60-Plastic-Sporks).
