Gerry Riley (2004)
Gerry acted for many years as Statistician (now known as Records Officer) from AURA’s inception in 1987 to 1997. Gerry’s work required that he establish the records from scratch and when he undertook the task he had to complete it without the aid of computers; quite a formidable task. Gerry was also a very accomplished ultra runner, contesting several Colac 6 day races (normally clocking up 750 kms) and was a quite prolific 24 hour runner, normally achieving 200km plus. He was a regular competitor at the Box Hill and Adelaide 24 hour events, Manly 100 milers and Coburg 100 km. He was one of the first Australians to run 100 marathons and played a significant role in organising the 50 mile championships when conducted by the Victorian Marathon Club, prior to the inception of AURA.
