About Steve Moneghetti

Steve ‘Mona’ Moneghetti is one of Australia’s all-time greatest marathon runners having represented the country at four Olympic Games, four Commonwealth Games and six World Championships. He has run an incredible 22 marathons and finished in 11th place or higher in 20 of them.

Steve’s training regime was intense. He trained twice a day, every day of the year, covering between 180-200 km per week and approximately 8500 km a year. He retired from international competition in 2000 but still runs every day, clocking up more than 100 km every week. His average Sunday involves a 20 km morning run followed by a 10 km run in the afternoon.

A down-to-earth and articulate speaker as well as a highly respected athlete, Steve draws parallels between the demands of an elite athlete and the corporate world. Tailoring his presentation to the client’s needs, Steve has presented at a variety of corporate, sporting and community events worldwide.

Steve’s career highlights include:

  • Bronze Medal, Commonwealth Games 10 km track (1998)
  • Gold Medal, Commonwealth Games Marathon (1994)
  • Silver Medal, Commonwealth Games Marathon (1990)
  • Bronze Medal, Commonwealth Games Marathon (1986)

He attended the 1987, ’91, ’93, ’95, ’97, ’99 World Athletic Championships winning a Bronze Medal in the 1997 Marathon in Athens. He also attended the 1988, ’92 ’96 and 2000 Olympic Games finishing in the top ten on three occasions.

Steve has a Degree in Civil Engineering, Graduate Diploma in Education (Maths/Science) and an Honorary Doctorate from University of Ballarat (2001).

In 2014 Steve was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for ‘significant service to athletics as a marathon runner, administrator and mentor to young athletes.’

During his three decades at the top of his sport, Steve Moneghetti developed a never-say-die attitude. Today, he continues to achieve peak performance while inspiring others, not only runners, to achieve their best at all times.
