Dom Harvey is a multifaceted personality known for his extensive career as a broadcaster, writer, and runner.

Born in New Zealand, Dom made a significant impact in the media industry as the host of the nationwide The Edge breakfast show from 2001 to 2021. His influence in broadcasting was recognised with awards such as the Sir Paul Holmes Award for NZ broadcaster of the year.

In addition to his broadcasting career, Dom has authored three best-selling books. His passion for running has not only led him to complete all six world marathon majors, including prestigious events in New York, Chicago, Tokyo, Berlin, London, and Boston, but also to inspire others through his writing. Notably, he achieved a sub-three-hour marathon in Tokyo, completing it in just 2 hours and 57 minutes, an experience he details in his book "Running: A Love Story."

His dedication to running and community service is evident in his extraordinary efforts, like running five marathons in five days, through which he and his team raised $250,000 for a young girl's cancer treatment in Barcelona. This remarkable feat earned him both the Kiwibank NZ Local Hero award and an Outstanding Contribution to Radio award.

Currently, Dom Harvey continues to engage with his audience through his podcast 'The Dom Harvey Podcast', where he chats with a variety of individuals, from Olympians to casual joggers, exploring the diverse experiences and stories within the running community. Additionally, he leads unique travel experiences, such as a marathon-running adventure in Cuba and Mexico, showcasing his ongoing commitment to both running and community engagement.
