2020 Geelong Half Marathon and 7 km Run

After careful consideration of the ongoing coronavirus situation, we have deferred the 2020 Geelong Half Marathon and 7 km Run from September until Sunday April 11th 2021.

As well, this year we will hold a free virtual event in September for everyone who had registered for the 2020 Geelong Half Marathon and 7 km Run. You can do your run (21.1 km or 7 km) anytime and anywhere during the week 7th-13th September. At the start of that week, we will email all registrants a link, so you can enter the details of your run. Results will be posted here on our website. As this is a free event, there will be no prize money or medals awarded Рjust bragging rights!

The Happy Runner ‘Not-the-Torquay’ 10 km Virtual Race

A slightly smaller field of seventy runners participated in the virtual running of the Happy Runner 10 km sealed handicap, perhaps deterred by the wet weather late in the week. This event replaced the Torquay course, with long stretches on the sand, held in the hometown of the sponsors. The reintroduction of Stage 3 travel restrictions meant far fewer runners ran the actual course. It was club uniform co-ordinator, Jeanette Austin, who was a convincing winner from Damian Woodberry who narrowly took second place from Mark Humphrey. Austin has made a remarkable comeback from debilitating leg injuries as evidenced by her recent age graded victory and is now second in the consistency standings. Fastest times were again recorded by Hayley Newman and Dan Wright.

The Injury Clinic ‘Not-the-Fyansford’ 8 km Virtual Race

A total of 71 runners participated in the virtual running of the Injury Clinic 8km sealed handicap.  This virtual race replaced the tough Fyansford event and a quarter of the contestants tackled the actual course throughout the week. Victory went to front marker Fiona Fitzpatrick who was placed last week and is still searching for her first actual club win. Jeanette Austin, who is surging up the consistency award standings, was second with last week’s winner, Linda Gasparini continuing her fine form to take third place. Fastest times were again taken out by Hayley Newman and Dan Wright.
