2005 Canberra Marathon

Posted by speedygeoff On Tuesday, April 12, 2005 | 1 comment
Last Sunday saw the running of the 2005 Canberra Marathon. In very hot conditions the biggest field in twenty years struggled to run the times they had marked on their forearms. A few ran PBs, while for many it was their very first marathon.
I am pleased to say that all in our group did well - not one dnf.

Here are our training group performances.

112 David Webster M ACT 53 3:14:27
221 John Kennedy M ACT 54 3:31:15
313 Ken Eynon M ACT 59 3:44:54
337 Bill Leyden M ACT 59 3:48:46
392 Cathy Newman F ACT 44 3:54:38
512 Ruth Baussmann F ACT 54 4:09:31
541 Gabrielle Brown F ACT 41 4:14:23
674 Pam Faulks F ACT 44 4:36:27
681 Ewen Thompson M ACT 47 4:37:39
721 Karen Collins F ACT 57 4:50:03

There are also quite a few other friends whose performances were of particular interest to me.

  1. Thanks Geoff. It's hard to DNF in Canberra - especially once you get to 33k - there's no short-cut home. Why can I almost keep up with Carol Baird on Saturdays yet she thrashes me in the marathon? Plus, she did 50k!

    P.S. I can't make the Vet's meeting on Thursday.
