It was a cold and wet morning for this year’s Bathurst Edgell jog, but the weather did not deter hundreds of runners from attending the fantastically well run event. Nathan Sutherland, who is coached online by Sean Williams, lined up in this year’s event hoping to run under 29 minutes and place in the top 10. When the race started, he felt relaxed and went through the first kilometre in 3.15 and in 6th place. Before he knew it, Nathan had reached the 3 kilometre mark and the foot of the steep hill in Esrom Street. He found the hill quite tough and was very thankful when he had completed this section of the course. When Nathan reached the top of the hill, he was overtaken by two people and tried to hang on to the back of them. They pulled away from him at the 5 kilometre mark but he managed to keep a good rhythm to the finish line. Nathan ended up finishing the run in 8th place with a time of 28 minutes and 27 seconds. Nathan made his first comeback to running a few years ago when he was chosen in the Indigenous Marathon Project team under great Aussie runner Rob De Castella. This stint helped re-spark his flame and desire to succeed in running. He has been gradually re-finding the form from his stellar junior running days and before too long, this Orange runner will be climbing the podiums at the presentations at races.
