The 2014 Down Under Sports Cross Country Team represented the United States very well in the Gold Coast Marathon 5.7 km race! With almost 3400 finishers, this is a very competitive race and the Aussies are always very welcoming, but at the same time ready to defend their home course. With an energetic “big time” race atmosphere, this is a fun race to watch and even more fun to compete in!
Our top male finisher was Christopher Boranian (CA) with his 5th place overall finish in a time of 18:51 while Ashley Onsae (AZ) was our highest female finisher with her 8th place finish in the women’s division (68th place overall) with a time of 22:29. Repeating last year’s team success, the guys placed 11 runners in the top 20 overall and the girls had 8 runners in the top 20 in the female division. We have had runners in the top 5 every year we have competed in this race and have had both a male and female runner finish as the runner-up in this great race... will next year be the year we have our first overall champion?! I hope you will con- sider joining our team to represent the USA and help continue our competitive tradition as we once again prepare to race in the land down under!
