Australian Half Marathon Championships - Sunday 19 August - Sunshine Coast QLD
Australian Marathon Championships - Sunday 16 September - Sydney NSW
Athletics Tasmania will look to send a strong team to defend their 2017 medal winning performances to both the Australian Marathon Championships (Sydney) and the Australian Half Marathon Championships (Sunshine Coast) later this year. Selectors have now released the selection criteria for these teams, which includes automatic selection for the Tasmanian Champions from the Cadbury Marathon in January if they met the qualifying standard.
Tasmania has always had a strong reputation in these events, and this has continued with a number of medals, both individual and team, in recent years.
See the SELECTION CRITERIA for further details on the events, qualifying standards, and nomination periods.
