HOME STRETCH: Nathaniel Warren shifts up a gear as he heads for the finish line ahead of Luca O’Flynn.


Stawell Amateur Athletic Club champion Nathaniel Warren is on track for a tilt at a three-hour Adelaide Marathon in August after his barnstorming finish to snatch victory in the five-kilometre Axis Employment Handicap at Stawell on Saturday.
Lying 10th with a kilometre to run, Warren was working hard and looked out of contention until he changed up a gear on the last hill in the Ironbarks.
Veteran Robert Freeland was the last frontmarker to tumble, almost catching windburn as Warren breezed past him, and it was then left to promising youngster Luca O’Flynn to chase the winner to the timekeepers.
It has long been Warren’s ambition to run a sub-three hour marathon in Adelaide but he has been thwarted in several attempts by illness and injury during the run.
“I’m probably about 30 seconds down on the race pace and training pace I’m aiming for,” the Stawell policeman said.
“I’m not adjusting too well to the shift work, which has reduced my sleep hours from six to about four-and-a-half, but I should fire up now that my dad is helping me train.”
