Illawong ventures to the Gold Coast

While many of you were thinking about that Sunday morning run after the Endeavour Cup a small number of our intrepid members were warming up on the Gold Coast for the half and full marathon.

Conditions were ideal, with record numbers in both events.

The Illawong charge was led by Robyn Basman in the half marathon recording the outstanding time of 1.30.18 and finishing first in her age category. Congratulations Robyn.

She was closely followed by her partner Brian Mackie who cracked the 1.50 barrier for the first time with 1.49.41.

Di Lister attempting her first half marathon on an interrupted preparation completed the Illawong trio in the time of 2.43.59.

In the marathon dad of Georgia and Saturday regular Neil Anderson broke 3.30 in a great run to record 3.29.57.

Our secretary Ian Lister, attempting his first marathon, finished in 4.24.15. Claims that he slowed in the second half as Di was waiting for him at the 35km mark remain unsubstantiated.

After many days of rain the weather gods smiled on the NSW World Junior Athletes who turned up to the Ridge track on Saturday.

Illawong athletes Jake Hammond and Ella Nelson despite being selected in March after their outstanding performances at the National Youth Championships had a month starting from 5 June to run a pre-departure qualifying time before they got on the plane to Canada to show that they were not injured and were fit and in form.
