Best-placed Australian in the Great Ocean Road Real Estate-sponsored event was Melbourne’s Magnus Michelsson who battled into fourth place in 2:40:06 after suffering a hamstring strain at the half-way mark.
Geelong’s Natalie Mensch, wife of former Geelong footballer David Mensch, won the women’s section in 3:20:17.
The event attracted more than 3,500 contestants from 15 countries.
