The ABC warns that today’s the big day for Canberra’s runners and the Canberra Marathon is on.
- The 42-kilometre course includes a lap around the new and old Parliament Houses and over the Kings and Commonwealth Avenue Bridges.
So if you must drive through the centre of town prepare to cope with diversions and delays.
UPDATE: The ABC brings the astonishing news that a NSW runner called David Crinity “has won the Canberra Marathon in a time of two minutes, 26.1 seconds.”
My quick back of the envelope calculations suggest this puts his speed somewhere around 1000kmph and I’m wishing I’d gone down there to see that.
Magdda Karimali Poulos won the women’s race in a less astonishing 2 hours and 43 minutes.
