About Les Tobin
Les along with Christy McFadden started the monthly time trial as a tool for members to strive for improvement.
Les was regularly the 3hr 45min pacer at the Gold Coast Marathon, a key player in the club’s participation in the Endeavour 500km Road Relay, a true leader in guiding and supporting club members in their training for various events and quite simply a really great guy. Les also served his country as a proud military man and was an avid studier in the field of genealogy.
Les was a long term member of the club who is remembered as a true gentleman and passionate runner who was always keen to share his experience, humor and enthusiasm. Sadly, Les passed away in January 2018 & is truly missed by those in the club who knew him.
