For anyone interested in following the Gold Coast Marathon (or Half-Marathon) this weekend. There is an app (Gold Coast Airport Marathon by ASICS) you can download, which will allow you to track any athlete (my number is 46). Otherwise there will be a live webcast of both races which you should be able to access via the race website, and possibly a live race leaderboard (which I will probably not be part of!). :) ...

Evening All,

Session is 20 minutes of reps with equal recovery of a fast jog.

Surf coast trail marathon results are in and two podium finishes for the milers!

Well done to Damian Angus in second with a fast 2:59. Possibly his quickest time yet. Winner was about 7min quicker (new course record) which is just crazy on course like that. Well done Damo!

In the marathon team relay, Anthony Mithen and yours truly came in third place with a time of 3hr and 25min. Whilst we couldn't emulate our first place of two years ago, we finished quicker this year and Mitho put in a gutsy effort to get the podium finish.

Not sure we saw any other milers out there. But the weather gods made it a very pleasant day out.

Park Run results. Congrats to Fitter on breaking 17 minutes for the first time. Great run by Bevo even if he wasn't totally satisfied, going through 3k in 9:14 and cruising through to 15:45. Nice prep for next week's Gold Coast marathon. Keep an eye out for the lead women as he hopes to be around the mark if they're aiming for 2:28.

Park Run results. Great win by Peely in preparation for the Kona marathon coming up to celebrate his 30th. AK and I were doing a warm down and looked across to see he and another guy doing some more speedwork after the race, pretty impressive. As Peely posted elsewhere, the Milers now hold all the male age group records in Berwick Springs from 35-59. Stevie Williams is king of Parkville with his 3rd win there and Bruce Arthur keeps on doing well on the difficult Studley Park course. C'mon Bruce, you've got to do at least one run somewhere fast to join the sub 18 list.

Berwick Springs:

1 Luke PEEL 16:47 SM25-29 Age Grade % 76.96 %, 17th fastest time in Australia for the day

The Melbourne Midday Milers

The Midday Milers offer city workers an informal but structured lunch-time training program. The group meets at 12:30pm each weekday at the Tan Track, only a five-minute jog from the Flinders St / Swanston St intersection. All levels of runners are welcome to join us for a variety of casual, easy runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or more intense, speed / fartlek / hill sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. To ensure we cater for all standards of runners, Β the Tuesday and Thursday sessions have dedicated A and B groups. To see how this works, refer to our fortnightly Training Program.

The famous Tan Track is one of Melbourne’s most picturesque running venues. We start most runs from the “Pillars of Wisdom” – on the Tan Track just south of the Swan St Bridge.
