New South Wales


Andrew Lloyd is an English-born Australian distance runner who rose to fame by winning numerous high-profile Australian road races & fun runs throughout the 1980s & 1990s. Arguably the highlight of Lloyd's career was his last lap come-from-behind victory in the Auckland Commonwealth Games 5000m event in 1990.

Five years prior to this victory, Lloyd was involved in a devastating car crash that claimed the life of his wife & left him in traction with doctors advising that his running career was over. He worked closely with coach Dick Telford at the Australian Institute of Sport through his rehabilitation & just over a year later returned to racing at the 1986 City 2 Surf where he claimed his third victory in this iconic fun run.

Lloyd continued to work harder and despite the pain that came with every run he went on to represent Australia at World Championships, Olympic & Commonwealth Games in a successful comeback. Following retirement Lloyd continued to run regularly for fitness with his family & he owns a sports company that imports products for athletes.
