Lisa Corrigan (born December 2, 1984 in Blacktown, New South Wales) is an Australian middle distance runner. She set her personal best time of 4:05.25, by winning the women's 1500 metres at the Telstra Athletics Series in Sydney.
Corrigan represented Australia at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed for the 1500 metres. She ran in the second heat against ten other athletes, including Ukraine's Iryna Lishchynska, who eventually won the silver medal in the final. She finished the race in ninth place by twenty-seven hundredths of a second (0.27) behind United States' Erin Donohue, outside her personal best time of 4:16.32. Corrigan, however, failed to advance into the final, as she placed twenty-ninth overall and was ranked farther below three mandatory slots for the next round.
