Jack Jude's Podium finish at 14 years old
The Australian Marathon Championships were held at Mt Joyce on April 17th, and it was a great race. Jason English took out the full marathon (80kms) and was crowned the 2011 Australian Marathon Champion followed by Andrew Blair and Shaun Lewis. Anna Beck, a QLD rider crossed the line in third behind Jenny Fay (NSW) and Jenni King (VIC) after a great race.Two local riders and members of the Trailblazers MTB Club also took up the 80km marathon challenge with fantastic results. Howard McCann came 1st in the Sport Male division, Richard Poyner came 3rd in the Ultra Master Male division and Garth Kellet came 26th in Master Male division.

We had a hand full of Cognition customers and Trailblazers who entered the half marathon (43km) with some extraordinary results.

Jack Jude, 14 years old, the youngest competitor, crossed the line first and came away as the half marathon champion. Some other great results include Zack Agius (8th) and Ethan Kelly (13th) in the open half male.
Justin Thompson came 29th in veteran Male half.
