Toby is definitely one to watch. His most recent run in the 10km Great Barrier Reef Marathon was an incredible display of his talent when he sprint finished with the Australian Professional Runner-Dylan Stenson. Toby placing second by literally a millimetre and 1 measly second in a blistering time of 34.19 minutes in some very heavy conditions.

This kid is very quickly climbing the Australian running ranks.
