ES Marks Athletics Field, 24 November 2007
17-year-old Ryan Gregson continued his record breaking season, setting a new Australian U18 5000m record with a run of 14:14.35. The performance improved the previous record held by Victoria's Mark Thompson by five seconds.
Gregson finished 10 seconds behind national cross country champion Jeff Hunt, who clocked 14:04.11 following the pacing assistance of his Randwick Botany Harriers team mates Jeff Farelly and Jeremy Roff.
Gregson's run came just a fortnight after breaking the Australian U20 3000m record held by Craig Mottram with a 8:01.26 third placing at the NSW 3000m Championships held at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre.
