Canberra marathon plan

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, April 05, 2014 with 2 comments
Plans for Sunday 13 April: The Canberra Marathon and Ultra Marathon start together at 6:30am and diverge after 40k. I plan to hover around the Banks Street/Weston Park area, seeing the runners in both events at 34/37k. I will park on Novar Street, near the northern end, which will only be closed at the very top. Getting there around 7:00am, I will do a short warmup then run a 10k tempo run around Weston Park. I imagine the first runners won't be arriving until 8:15am or so, and the 10k will be finished by then. Then to cheer on the runners. Those I have located in the entry "list" are:
00019 Kelley-ann
00414 Bronwyn
00519 Katherine
00847 Lucia
00905 Catherine Brims
00925 John Diamond
01308 Craig
01340 Robyn
01341 Kylie
01383 Tesso
01416 Ruth
01525 Roger
04849 Pam Muston
06528 Michelle Wells
07189 Maria
11588 Susan Archer
People are still entering so there may be more speedygeese and friends to come.

Meanwhile Kathy Sims has taken out the 3000m "Moore Series" with the highest age adjusted average, close to 90%, running the final event to just qualify with the minimum of 5 events.  Here is Kathy at the Nationals.


  1. Sounds like a plan. I'll get there around the same time and run a 9k jog around Weston Park, thus saving my energy for cheering.

  2. Lucia looks to be in fantastic form, ran with her this morning. She will run a blinder.
