Ultra-marathon runner, Tash Fraser, not only set the record for the women’s 10km event, but also the men’s event at Vision Super’s Ripples on the Res Fun Run last month.

Tash, who has represented Australia in 50km events, increased her pace with every lap to post the fastest time ever recorded by any individual in the 10km fun run, with a time of 38:02.

The Maryborough and District Triathlon Club, who host the fun run, encourage participation from all levels, but are thrilled the event attracted a champion runner.

“It was great to see so many people come out to enjoy the event, and then to have an Australian champion runner in Tash Fraser set a new course record was just the icing on the cake,” said Martin Mark, president of Maryborough and District Triathlon Club.

Tash’s love for running came after working her way around Lake Wendouree in Ballarat. She realised that running was a good stress outlet. The longer she ran, the better she felt.

Tash has since increased her distance and is running around three to five ultra-marathons a year. She still loves to participate in small community events like the Ripples on the Res fun run as they give her the chance to check out a new area and meet new people.

“I’ll definitely be at the Ripples on the Res again next year, it’s a gorgeous course and the event has a great atmosphere. I also like that because it’s run in a loop, there are always people running with you!” Tash said.

This past weekend, Tash broke the 50km treadmill world record to raise funds for River’s Gift - the largest non-government charity for SIDS research.

Hundreds of people (in person and live online) watched Tash run at the Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre. So far, she has raised $1,753 for the charity.

“I’ve been involved with River’s Gift for a while, and a few of my crazy running friends encouraged me to go for the world record. I am delighted I managed to achieve it.”

Tash is keen to return to the Vision Super Ripples on the Res fun run in 2018, so if you’d like to run alongside the champion runner, keep an eye on Maryborough and District Triathlon Club’s Facebook page for next year’s registration details.

“I think we are on to a real winner with our fun run,” Martin Mark, president of Maryborough and District Triathlon Club (and organizer of the event) said.

“Tash has set the bar really high with her time but that’s what records are for - to be broken!” 

You can find more information about Tash’s World record event and donate to her cause (River’s Gift) at Tash’s Facebook page.
