Personal best times all round at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival

Sunday saw IMP athletes past and present tackle the annual Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, with 2012 New York Marathon finisher Charlie Maher, and 2012 squad member Korey Summers take on the half marathon, and 2011 New York Marathon finisher Nadine Hunt run the 9kmB Bridge Run.

Representing the Northern Territory as part of the Australian half-marathon championships, Korey ran a personal best time over the 21 km course, finishing in 79 minutes, with Charlie also running a personal best in 87 minutes.

Nadine ran a great race in the 9km, finishing in 44 minutes.

The running festival was also the site for the inaugural Indigenous Marathon Project shoe drive. Over the five days leading up to race day, and race day itself, we collected 10 boxes of used an unwanted running shoes, which will now be sent to remote Indigenous communities across Australia.
