The Oceania Championships for the 10km Road and Marathon took place on the Gold Coast, on the 1st and 2nd of July 2017.

The Men’s marathon, was a much tighter affair with Dave Ridley from New Zealand, breaking away over the final kilometers to win from Australian Charlie Boyle by 24 seconds.

The Men’s 10km road race was close race with Timothy Lefroy from Australia taking line honours in a time of 29 minutes and 48 seconds. Winning by 1 second from Matthew Hudson. Local youngster Louis Mcafee rounded out the podium in a time of 29 minutes 50 seconds.

The Women’s 10km was won in commanding fashion by Eloise Wellings. It was her last race in Australia before heading to Europe to prepare for the World Championships in London, where she will compete over 10,000m.
