Genevieve Gregson won the Qld Open women's 10000m Championships on 1st August. The Championships were held at our Club's home base, the Gold Coast Performance Centre, Runaway Bay.
Gen's winning time of 32:59.83 established a new Club record. She now adds this to the Club 5000m, 2000m steeplechase, and 3000m steeplechase records she already holds.
Genevieve's husband, Ryan Gregson, better known as a 1500m runner (he is the current Australian record holder over that distance) took out the men's 10000m title in an absorbing men's race. The top 8 finishers all went under 30 minutes. Ryan's time (29:17.91) was just over a minute shy of Michael Shelley' Club record (27:50.77).
