About the Kerryn McCann 10

The 10km will be run in honour of one of Australia’s finest ever female distance athletes, the late, great Kerryn McCann. Born and bred in the Illawarra Kerryn’s achievements are numerous having won many Australian championship titles, winning Australia’s iconic footrace, the City 2 Surf, and, of course, back to back Commonwealth Games marathon gold medals in 2002 (Manchester) and 2006 (Melbourne).

Kerryn was a very proud member of Kembla Joggers for many years and won the Greater Bank Fitness 5 female race no fewer than 5 times, with her first victory in the inaugural edition in 1990. Her time of 15.49 in 2005 still stands as the female course record, something a number of other Australian representatives have been unable to snatch from her since.

The race will follow the same course as the Greater Bank Fitness 5 on the way out and return. The additional 5km is achieved by continuing north from the Greater Bank Fitness 5 turn at North Beach, through Stuart Park, then heading north through Puckey’s Estate nature trail and returning the same way.

Kembla Joggers is very excited to bring this new 10km event to the running community in honour of a local champion. It is hoped the event will grow and become a feature race on the national running calendar.
