Gary made the most of the cloudy conditions to surpass one of QMA's oldest records. That of 55.3 set in 1981 by Bill Grady.

Wrap-up of QMA Half Marathon Challenge 2017
Now that all results have been collated, we can report that 39 athletes (28 men and 11 women) have participated, competing in a total of 66 events, ranging from Rockhampton to Ulverstone (Tasmania) and from the Gold Coast to Alice Springs! That's a lot of kilometres, both in competition and in training! And of course – all participants are to be congratulated on their efforts.
The FINAL RESULTS table summarises results by age group, showing each participant's best time (where athletes did more than one half), and the corresponding Age Graded %. Several new QMA Age Group Best Performances have been recorded.
No medals will be awarded, but all participants will receive certificates, and several small trophies will be presented at the QMA Brisbane Christmas lunch on the 9th December. So if your name is on the list, come along either to receive your trophy, or congratulate the winners.
This day is in memory of our Members who have passed on. A Certificate will be awarded to the best age-graded performance by one Male and one Female in each of the Memorial Events.
If you would like to assist with the preparation and serving of the meal on the day, please contact Irene Davey - email@example.com
