My Races

This page is a work in progress. I am trying to remember all the races I have done and list them along with times if I can find the details..

As you can see I am not a majorly fast runner but I have had an awesome time running some of these races and plan to continue…

2015

Bridge to Brisbane (for fun) 56 mins- see my race recap 

River Run – total for team was 9 hrs 15 – see my race recap 

Gold Coast Airport Marathon – 4:34.35 – see my race recap 

2012

Park Run 5k (January) – 25 mins something. Was a hot day and first race back after holidays so I wasn’t expecting great times!

2011

Brisbane Road Runners 5k (August) 24.55 – was the third woman 🙂

Ipswich Park2Park – very hilly but enjoyable course. Time was 25.35 – came in as 28th woman and 4th for my age group.

Mothers Day 8k – 42.40 – again wasn’t very well so this time was slower than 2010!

International Womens Day 5k – 25 mins 06 – shouldn’t have run as was sick!

2010 in Australia from now on

Mothers day 8k – 41 min 12

Doomben 10k – 54 mins

Gold Coast Half Marathon (21k) 1 hours 59 secs

Townsville Half Marathon (21k)– 1 hours 58 secs (with a 3 minute toilet break!!)

2010 Cool Night Classic (5.2k) – 26 mins 10

2009

Bridge to Brisbane 10k – 1hr 04

2008

Chester Half Marathon (21k) – 2 hrs 06

2006

Paris Marathon (42k)– time TBC

This was the year my poor husband to be saw me stagger over the finish line, directed me to the nearest toilet and I was ill. He made me promise after that no more full marathons!

Race for Life 5k, Leicester – 24 minutes I think

Race for Life 5k, Chester – 24-25 mins I think

2005

Robin Hood Half Marathon (21k)– 1 hr 58

Hastings Half Marathon (21k) – terrible undulating race! My time was abysmal!

Leicester Half Marathon (21k) – in the days when this race started at Mallory Park. I enjoyed this race – it was a bit chilly from what I can remember though – so it was beany and gloves time.

2004

Berlin Marathon (42k) – 4 hr 21

Race for Life 5k – 21/22 minutes I think this was my super duper time where I did a PB of 21 minutes – never did a race in that time again…..it was 2004 or 2003. I came 6th in the whole race which was awesome for me.

British 10k, London – can’t remember time but I know this year it was a hot year and both my friend and I struggled to push through but I think I did a reasonable time.

Newark Half Marathon – my time on this was approx 2hr15 – it was a heatwave and the race didn’t start until something stupid like 11am and as I was running round I watched in horror as people passed out, threw up and pulled out of the race. I crawled round and finished but with a bit of heat exhaustion vowing never to do it again!

2003

London Marathon (42k) – 4 hours 24

First and best marathon from enjoyment point of view. The crowds were awesome, the people that helped me train were awesome – I was on a high after this race although couldn’t walk properly for a week, having to walk down the stairs backwards!

Dublin Marathon (42k)– best not to say as it was a long time (over 5 hours – had to walk part of it as had injury – stupid me kept going!)

Reading Half Marathon (21k)– 1 hr 51

Great South Run 10 miles (16k) – 1 hr 30 I think – I remember being disappointed with this time

Race for life 5k – not sure of time

Kingston 16 (25k), London – can’t remember time but I think it was a reasonable one

Nike 10k, London – not sure of time

Flora 5k – not sure of time

2002

The Great North Run Half Marathon (21k)– 2 hr 20 – First Half Marathon and was overly cautious as people had said it was hilly, got to end and felt I could keep going which tells me I could have gone much faster!!

British 10k, London – not sure of time

Nike 10k, London – not sure of time

Flora 5k – not sure of time – possibly 28 mins

2001

Flora 5k, London – I think this was my first 5k and I did 35 mins

Nike 10k, London – not sure of time but I remember this was my first race and where I had a nightmare with my shoes and clothing.

    Zoe, Good on you! I did not know that you are a runner. Amazing efforts I say. Running takes real discipline; something I admire and strive to be better at myself.

    Do Melbourne Marathon this year if you can. It is in the middle of October.
