Your favourite running event? And why?
Tricky question as there are many events that I love both in Australia and overseas. I have raced the Gold Coast Half Marathon many times since my debut there over the HM distance in 2010 and really enjoy the atmosphere, the view of the sun rise in the early kilometers and the professionalism of the event. The Virgin London Marathon is also a phenomenal event that I feel grateful to have experienced in 2017.
