1954_-_Coburg_Harriers_24_Hour_Relay_1.jpg
1954 - Coburg Harriers 24 Hour Relay 2The first 24-hour non-stop track run held in Melbourne is planned by the Coburg Harriers Athletic Club on October 16 and 17. The 24 entries will be divided into three groups of eight runners, who will divide the time. The runners hope to cover 260 miles in the 24 hours and set up a record for other clubs to attempt. A number of prominent marathon runners are among the entries. The race will be held on the McDonald Reserve, Coburg, starting at 6 pm on October 16.

1960_Olympian_Herb_Elliott_2.jpg
1950 Olympian Herb ElliotHerb Elliott AC MBE is Australia's greatest middle distance runner. In August 1958 he set the world record in the mile run, clocking 3:54.5, 2.7 seconds under the record held by Derek Ibbotson; later in the month he set the 1500 metres world record, running 3.36.0, 2.1 seconds under the record held by Stanislav. In the 1500 metres at the 1960 Rome Olympics, he won the gold medal and bettered his own world record with a time of 3:35.6.

Few people have ever exercised such absolute authority in any branch of sport as Elliott did in middle distance running from 1957 to 1961. During that span he never lost a 1500 metres or 1 mile race. During his career, he broke four minutes for the mile on 17 occasions. Elliot's nearest rival was fellow Australian Merv Lincoln.

Training under the legendary Persey Cerrutty, his sand hill runs at Portsea became legendary.

1947 - Harold Stevens sets a SA U19 1 Mile RecordHarold Stevens scored a clever win in the Under 19 Mile.

Almost immediately Harold challenged and led until 300 yards from home, when Cooper ran to the front leaving Harold in the box seat to finish over Cooper and win by a good yard. Time: 4 minutes 34.3 seconds - South Australian Under 19 Record.
