Kyneton Ultramarathon runner Greg Wilson last month took part in the 100km Australian Championships at Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, where he was presented with some long-awaited awards. 

Wilson was acknowledged for his 2022 and 2023 M70 World Age Best Performance for 6Hours (he broke his own 2022 record!) and was also presented with the 2022 Cliff Young Award, which he received last year. 

The Australian Ultra Runners Association also announced the recipients of the 2023 Annual Awards. 

Wilson has the new Australian M70 records for 200km and 48hr, 100 miles and 24hr, plus a new M70 World Best age record for 6hr at the Southern Sydney Track Ultra. 

These achievements contributed to Greg Wilson being announced as the Australian Ultra Runners Association ‘Male Runner Of The Year – 2023’. 

The latest awards will be presented to Wilson at the 24 Hour Asian Oceania Championships in Canberra in April.
