Miss Universe 2010, Jesinta Campbell is the new face of the City2Surf. With the race coming up she told the boys about her running preparations.
As Matty mentioned, Gus has recently been doing his own preparations for his New York Marathon, including running a half marathon near Uluru.
Jesinta On The Grill Team
"Jesinta, a member of The Grill Team - Gus Worland just did a half marathon."
"How'd you go? I'm proud of you bro."
"Jesinta, you were telling us you were running a half marathon, with about three kilometres to go you tore your calf muscle off the bone, what time did you do in the end?"
"I did it in two hours"
"Well Gus completed a marathon in Uluru, on the complete flat in Uluru, just over three hours"
"Umm wow...people do a full marathon in three hours"
The boys calculated it and it works out to be about 7kms/hr... we reckon some people can walk quicker than that! With that info they thought they might share with Jesinta, a few things FASTER than Gus Worland.

We love the burly cult-hero, but he's not really known for his speed off the mark... we still reckon he'd give big Gus a run for his money though.

Just like Gus, Nancy Schubring ran a half-marathon but with a pram... in half the time! About 1 and a half hours to be exact.
