Jack Rayner

Jack Rayner (athletics) is aiming to tackle the 10,000m at the world championships and the marathon at his first Commonwealth Games, with the hope of keeping the marathon in Australian hands for the third consecutive Games. Rayner began running aged seven, had a coach (Keith Fearnley) two years later and the following year he was at his first junior championships. For the next decade he would be competitive, with his national junior 5000m title at 17 his main success, before joining Nic Bideau’s Melbourne Track Club. He won his first national title on the track in 2022, winning the Zatopek (Australian 10,000m title). After running a personal best of 2:11.06 in 2019, Rayner was forced to withdraw from the Tokyo 2020 marathon with a stress fracture before the 10km mark. He also ran with the first and last 5km legs that helped pace Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge to become the first person to run a marathon in under two hours in October 2019. On March 6, 2022, Rayner set a new Australian record for the 10,000m of 27:15.22 in the USA. He has partnered with Brett Robinson and Collis Birmingham on www.pulserunning.com.au, a resource to help aspiring runners.
