About the project

Hello and thank you for considering a donation.


In 2021 I am committing to becoming the best athlete I can. My key goals for this year are to break the South Australian record in the Half Marathon and make my debut in the marathon. To have the best possible chance of achieving these goals, I am required to travel nationally and internationally to competitions and training camps, thus reducing my workload as a physiotherapist. Your donation will allow me to make these goals achievable.


In 2020, COVID 19 cancelled many races and events which made being an elite athlete even more difficult with opportunities to race, earn prize money and gain financial support. Throughout this period I continued to train and compete where I could and have begun 2021 running personal bests in my first four races.


My Personal bests are:

5,000m: 13:50

10,000m: 28.45

Half Marathon: 63:35 (#2 South Australian All Time)

I have also finished 2nd (2018) and 4th (2019) at the Australian Cross Country Championships and 2nd (2017) at the Australian Road Running Championships.


Cheers,

Riley
