IMP athletes shine on a national stage

Indigenous Marathon Project athletes past and present were recognised on a national stage over the weekend, with some more outstanding results recorded right across the country.

In Alice Springs, 2012 New York Marathon squad member Korey Summers took to the track, winning silver medals in the 1500m and 5000m, and taking out his age group.

Korey’s results place him as one of the top distance runners in the Northern Territory, and stand him in good stead for the New York Marathon, now less than three months away.

On Sunday, 2011 New York Marathon runner Nadine Hunt was part of the winning team in the Kuranda to Port Douglas 64km ultra relay, while 2011 team mate Bianca Graham and 2012 squad member Nicky Kerindun put in some great runs to take out third place.
