  • Did the Blackmores Sydney Marathon in 2018

    My first marathon and generally a great event. My only critisim is the section of the run in Pyrmont. It was in the later stage of the race and was just rubbish: no atmosphere, not a comfortable or pretty location and dragged on. Was really hard during this area to have any motivation to keep going. Otherwise well organised in frequency in drink stations and volunteers. Hopefully in future years the organisers improve on the wastage of single use plastic - that was very poor.
  • Did the Blackmores Sydney Marathon in 2018

    My first marathon and I absolutely loved it - epic course - amazing atmosphere and really well put together event. The course is pretty hilly at the end which is pretty brutal on the knees so hold some back for the end (I went out way too hot). Great to finish at the Opera House also / Opera bar for a few 9am wines. Will definitely do it again.

  • Did the 10k Dash in 2018

    With two knee replacements I was stoked that I did it. It was harder than I thought and I was suffering vertigo but the fact that I finished a(and not last) I couldnt have been happier. The view at the top was amazing and I think everyone did an excellent job organizing it. As I had not done anything like this before and came from Nambucca Heads I was a bit confused as the were to register. I had sent an email a few days before but no one answered it. I just went to the surf club and asked everyone and before long the girl arrived for registration. I wasnt aware you were suppose to register the day before but in the end it was all good. Cheers
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    I was ok with the information provided prior to the race, however I know the area. I did hear of other competitors who were surprised at the intensity of the incline up North Brother Mountain at the end.
