AUSSIE ELITES HEADING FOR MOSMAN
SOME of Australia’s fastest runners head to Mosman this Sunday to compete in the Mini-Mos Community Fun Run 10k road race.
The men’s 10k field will see the likes of Commonwealth Games marathoner Liam Adams take on fellow competitors, short distance runner Jordan Gusman and distance runner Ed Goddard.
Traveling from Melbourne to compete, Adams said it was Commonwealth Games athlete and three-times Mini-Mos champion Harry Summers who urged him to give the Mini-Mos a shot.
“I’ve been dealing with a couple of niggles and I thought I’d use the Mini-Mos to try and build up my confidence and have a good hit out before the Gold Coast half marathon,” Adams said.
Adams will compete on Sunday off the back of his recent success at the Commonwealth Games, placing 5th in the men’s marathon. His PB for a 10k road race is 28:4.
Asked if he has Brett Cartwright and Martin Dent’s joint record of 30:05 in his sights, Adams said he’ll “be having a crack”, but Jordan Gusman will be the one to beat.
