Undoubtly the form distance runner in NSW this winter has been Jeff Hunt. A former national cross country champion, Hunt was devastating in the NSW Cross Country Championships in Nowra, then last week his form was confirmed with a major break though on the road, in the Gold Coast Half Marathon.
Hunt placed fourth in a fast race, running 62:44, the third best ever performance by a NSW athlete – faster than Andrew Lloyd, Scott Westcott or John Farrington have ever run. The time also lifted him to No 15 on the Australian all time list.
