October 14, 2020

This week’s guest is Grant page who lives in Hobart and who has been running for over 25 years. Grant won his first state title as a 12-year-old and then went onto win a bronze medal at the National Under 20 champs as a junior. He continued his progression as athlete being a regular finalist in the 1500m at Nationals and boasting a personal best of 3:42 over this distance. He was the previous state record holder for 1,000m and 3,000m, as well as also having a great range over 10km events and boasting a very impressive 10km personal best of 29:40 at the Launceston ten in 2009, the same year he was third in the Burnie Ten. When Grant is not running, he is a mechanic at the RACT and instead of having a regular cat or dog for a pet, he has a wallaby called Rooby. He is the current record holder for the number of wins at a City to Casino and he has won this race an impressive 8 times throughout his career. We talk about these races, injuries he has suffered, what the future for athletics at grassroots level is and life in general. Grant is one of Tassie’s best ever distance runners and has had a career to be proud of.
