Jack Rayner has broken Craig Mottram’s Australian 10,000m road record at the Burnie 10 over the weekend. Rayner clocked 27:43 to shave 11 seconds off Mottram’s old mark of 27:54.
Mottram’s record was set back in 2004 in Manchester. Buster actually clocked a 27:39 in Madrid in 2006, but the course wasn’t legal.
Rayner cruised through the first 5km split in 13:54, 28 seconds clear of Sam McEntee. Rayner ended up beating McEntee home by 50 seconds, with the WA born McEntee clocking 28.34. Tasmanian James Hansen was 3rd in 28:56.
Rayner now owns the Australian 10,000m track record as well as the Australian 10km road record. He is also the third fastest Australian ever over 5000m (13:06 this year in Oslo), the seventh fastest ever over the half marathon, and the 16th fastest over the marathon. A list of Rayner’s PB’s and all-time rankings are shown below:
