RunLikeCrazy Marathon

RunLikeCrazy Marathon

It’s official! Melbourne will be the stage for marathon history, with the Runlikecrazy Marathon to be held in December. Melbournian Tristan Miller, will complete his fifty-second marathon in as many weeks at Albert Park and running enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in the final chapter. It will be a fitting and emotionally-charged end to an incredibly unique and astounding journey.

Date: 27th December, 2010
Start time: 8:30am (approx)
Finish time: 2:30pm
Where: Albert Park Lake, Melbourne (Victoria, Australia)
Distance: 42.2km, 21.1km, 10km

Here are some exciting facts about the race:

  1. It’s a 5km loop around Albert Park Lake, so it’s great for spectators who will see runners numerous times rather than just once.
  2. There will be themed entertainment representing the countries that Tristan has travelled to and refuelling stations along the course.
  3. People of all levels will be able to run with Tristan, not just the marathoners.
  4. The date is the Boxing Day public holiday in Australia, so you don’t need to take a day off work!
  5. You can close off a great year by completing a marathon, half marathon or 10km run – then celebrate your achievement in style at the Post Race Party.
  6. It will allow Tristan to do one race in Australia, ticking off all 7 continents in a single year!
  7. It’s a quite time of the year normally in Melbourne, so Albert Park will be where all the action is on the 27th December – don’t miss being a part of it!
  8. There are 3 races, so people of all levels can participate (walk or run).

When Tristan’s friends told him the Runlikecrazy Marathon was confirmed in his home town, here’s what he has to say…………

“The fact is, I am going to fulfill my dream to run all over the world and end my mission at home. That this is a reality now has me jumping for joy, so I hope it is just as exciting for you.

This is a MASSIVE win for RunLikeCrazy. Please rejoice with me and start training your butts off. I want you to join me in one of the greatest running celebrations of the year, along with the awesome post race party later that night.

I’m excited… I’m even pretty emotional. I’m going to get there. I’m going to do it. I’m not going to stop until I run with you all to the very end on the 27th of December. In fact, I’ll make this promise to you right now – if you come and run with me in Melbourne, I will run until the last person has finished. There is a 6 hour limit, so that should accommodate everyone. I will run for the full 6 hours if that is necessary, as long as you come and be a part of one of the greatest moments of my life…”

    Hello Tristan…just checking in again re: your stay in San Antonio for the Rock N Roll Marathon. Still want to hook up with you. I am going to pass on your info to AnaMaria at Roger Soler Sports. They would be a great group to get to know…they have several running groups if you are interested and they are one of the sponsors of the marathon. Look forward to meeting you. Do you have or need my cell phone? See you in a few weeks.

    Am thinking of doing this run – can you enroll for one event and drop back if you need too? Ie from the 21.6km to the 10km?
    Please let me know.

  8. TBone November 9, 2010 at 7:36 am

    Yes, you definitely can Matt! We’ll even refund the difference if you need.

    Is it on the 27th of December or the 31st?

    Hi TBone- I am really looking forward to welcoming you home after the epic marathon journey. I have been following you from the start. Of course with doubts but with time… yes, you can do it and it’s extremely amazing- what an Aussie! I (every one) am very proud and support you but of course not of us can even run at your pace at your final race. What an achievement! See you there KC

    Was a privilege to run the first 30 k with you at New York Tristan. I couldn’t have got close to 3:30 without you (3:31:21) Cheers and all the best – Mark from SA.

    Oh Tristan, just read you are doing your final marathon in our home town! That’s fantastic, what a remarkable, year, journey person!. You have inspired me, I have been in training and today I am climbing the 88 flights of Eureka Tower. I will be walking rather than running, but still….looking forward to seeing you back in St K!

  13. TBone November 17, 2010 at 10:14 am

    It’s on the 27th James. The 31st was just not possible.

  14. TBone November 17, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Fantastic result Mark!! It was awesome to run with you too!

  15. Terry Miller November 26, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Tristan, my nephew, you are amazing!! David would shake his head and be so proud of you – think of him when you run.

    love you
    A. Terry

    Hi T-Bone. I entered marathon No. 52 but after completing the Melbourne Marathon 10/10/10 my body has still not recovered enough and hamstrings/ hips quite sore. Unfortunately I am not made of the same stuff as you! I was wondering can I drop back to the 10km event? I don’t want a refund but wondered if It was OK to swap ‘events’.

    Looking forward to running at least some of your last marathon with you.


  17. TBone November 30, 2010 at 5:39 am

    That won’t be a problem Nikki!! I’m so happy you want to be involved, no matter what the distance. I’ll forward this message and ensure that it’s changed. Tristan

  18. Nikki Allen December 1, 2010 at 8:52 am

    Thanks so much T-bone. FYI I registered under the name Nicole Allen) I look forward to seeing you on the day.
    Can’t wait to hear how you go in Marathon 51 – Antarctica. That will be so awesome! Good luck for that.

  19. kyle connolly December 15, 2010 at 12:50 pm

  20. TBone December 21, 2010 at 4:49 am
