Striders Perform At Gold Coast Marathon

Mary Jackson, Pamela Murch & Stan Fetting after the Gold Coast Marathon.

A large contingent of Striders travelled to the Gold Coast Marathon this weekend to contest 3 distances: 10km, Half and Marathon.  We had a number of people doing their first Half, including the incredible Tommy Donnet, who came in at 1hr43min taking out 5th place in his category, Male 60-65.  Congratulations Tommy, you continue to astound us all!  Another great debut was Pamela Murch in in the marathon.  Fresh from Wales and a recent newcomer to Striders morning and evening sessions, Pamela overcame injury and posted an amazing 3:46. Pamela’s beaming smile almost outdid the sunshine and she’s probably still smiling today.  It’s great to see someone do so well after so much hard work and enjoy the benefits so visibly!

Karen Brown nailed a 1:42 Half, must be that new 2XU outfit she was sporting!

Emily Glegg contested the 10km and took out 8th place in her category with a 49:01. Others to debut at the Half were Jess Flintoff with an awesome 1:51 and Jo Filmalter who came in under her goal of 2hrs at 1:57.  Well done girls!

Stan just missed out on a sub 3 marathon with 3:00:23 after struggling with a calf injury from 25km, and Jenny Cawood continued her remarkable run with a 3:44 marathon.  Mary paced Jo C through her first marathon with a 4:47.  Mary rarely races for herself and always helps others out, a true clubster and coach!

I have the results of those who I know, and will add more as I become aware of them.  Here’s the list so far, (all showing chip times and not gun times) and some more pics:
