IMP dominates Melbourne Marathon

Four graduates, one coach and a number of running supporters – Melbourne was well and truly injected with IMP presence at the 2014 Medibank Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 12 October.

Bianca Graham (2011 graduate) and Justin Gaykamangu (2012 graduate) took on the half marathon, crossing the line in 1:44:23 and 1:48:49 respectively, while 2012 graduate, Korey Summers, flew through the 10km in 37:31, and Nadine Hunt, the first IMP Indigenous Australian woman to finish the New York Marathon, jogged her way through the 10km distance while battling injury crossing in an incredible time of 48:45.

IMP Head Coach, Mick Rees, put himself through the gruelling marathon after training for just 15 weeks and finishing in just over five hours. He was motivated to finish his first marathon so he could experience first-hand what his runners will feel in New York in a few short weeks.

There were a number of IMP supporters out running the course including a group of students from Monash University.

Are you entering a fun run and looking for a life-changing cause to support? It’s a great way to meet other IMP supporters, runners and graduates and make a difference to the lives of Indigenous Australians, today and future generations.
