Records tumbled at 2017 O'Keefe

May 25, 2017

There were many new records that tumbled at the 2017 O'Keefe.

 

Not only were there a 15% increase in competitor numbers but there were new course records set as well as age increment records.

 

 

Sarah Jalim (pictured here -photos courtesy of AJ Taylor Images) obliterated her own overall course record in the women's marathon by 9 minutes in also setting her own new personal best. The time a slashing 3:03:24 in recording back to back wins. Only 2 years ago Sarah went into the O’Keefe with a PB of 3:30 and after a 3:12:26 in 2016 she has dropped 27 minutes in her past 2 marathons.

 

The well-publicised age graded winner of the Mandalay Resources Golden Prize worth over $6,000 was won by the 73 year old Lavinia Petrie. The multiple times world record holder and world champion will now go to Much Wenlock Community Games in the United Kingdom and run in the half marathon in May 2018. 

 

 

The age graded calculates your time as a percentage of the world record for your age. The age graded results for all marathon performances are now calculated and you can view by CLICKING HERE.

 

Second on age graded was the men's overall winner Julian Spence narrowly from local David Meade.

 

Taking age graded results resulted in many participants going well up the result standings as compared to the line honours results. There were especially some fine performances by some of the older runners in the event.  

The winner Lavinia Petrie went on line honours from 32 to 1 on age graded results. Other making big movers in the age graded race were Fraser Faithfull 25 to 10, Julia Thorn 68 to 13, Max Carson 59 to 14, Janice Walker 96 to 17 and Kerri Comer 54 to 20.

 

Back to the age increment records which are recognised on our website. There are not prizes handed out in all these age groups but it provides an indication where you are compared to your peers in the same gender and roughly the same age.
