January 1985 - The AIS Track, Bruce

Yes, it's 21 years ago! I'm not sure of the distance - maybe 1500m or 3000m. It shows an unknown runner being followed intently by Kaaren Sutcliffe and Carol Ey, both of whom were marathon runners showing the benefit of racing on the track.


  1. Kaaren (then Karen Banks) was the first female runner to train with me, joining us in the early 1980's. Carol joined soon after at Kaaren's invitation. Both trained with me for many years and Carol ended up representing Australia and ran a marathon in 2:49, Kaaren 2:54 or there-abouts. They did huge volumes of quality training. Both raced track lots, from 1500 and up. I even remember them running fast 400s. Carol hopes to be able to run more this year (2006) than she has recently.

  2. Hi Geoff happy new Year!
