2023 Geelong Half Marathon report

A field of 677 athletes faced the starter in the 34th Geelong Half Marathon held on Sunday in ideal weather conditions for such a long race, although heavy overnight rain meant there were a few patches of surface water to contend with.

In one of the closest finishes in recent years, Dane Verwey held on to win by 6 seconds from Richard Johnston. The female winner was Danni Rogan who scored the win decisively.

Another 99 runners tackled the shorter 5 km event won by James Cruse and Amy Fawcett respectively.

Congratulations to everyone who participated and supported today!

A huge thanks to our volunteers & sponsors who had a presence on the day & behind the scenes, we love the community surrounding the Geelong Half Marathon to support raising funds for the Andrew Love Cancer Centre.
