Grahams Story:

On Sunday I ran my first ever marathon in Melbourne and most of it went really well, but at about 35k I was just done, I knew I was not going to achieve my goal pace (3:04:00) and I was pretty sure that my Boston marathon qualifying time (3:15:00) was out of the window too. […]

Melbourne Marathon & Half

Hardly a month goes by without yet another jaw-dropping performance from Laura James. As if last month’s win at the Sydney Half Marathon wasn’t enough for Laura, it actually just turned out to be just a training run for the main event in melbourne where Laura ran amazingly consistent splits to smash all predictions with […]
