Gold Coast Heartbreak

Essendon’s star, Liam Adams was shattered to miss an Olympic Qualifying time by just 6 secs last Sunday on a wet and windy Gold Coast. His marathon PB of 2:11.36 is a new club record, but he’d hoped to go even quicker. Liam finished in 6th place and was the first Aussie home.

Club stalwart Danny Hawksworth finished in 253rd place with a sub 3 hour time (2:58.15). A great effort for a runner approaching 40 years of age!
