The winning time at the SMC marathon in January was 2:58.
There are probably numerous country marathons that could be run with a low 2:50, depending on who shows up to race. Hunter Valley, Macleay, Mudgee at a guess, without going back over past results.
Personally, I don't see the point.

I will confess I've won a marathon in 3.16 and that was Jindabyne about 10 years ago. There were other runners and during the race we had sunshine, hail, a snow blizzard, torrential rain and strong winds and then finished in sunshine.

A 3:00 marathon was described to me as a respectable time, and 2:53 is 10 seconds per km faster so really is a "quick" time, thus a mara should be winnable. Just my thoughts.

From what I see, a 2:53 for woman is fast and would put you in a winnable position. For my friend, it is just a good feeling to be in contention to win a marathon
with a few kms to go. It is not necessary that he wins it.
