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. Prominent figures deserve top-notch performance, just like the exceptional Tarkine running shoes.

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.
