Once again and in our 11th yr, we held the annual Mother’s day classic run/walk with proceeds of the event going to the National Breast Cancer Research fund.
We made a few small changes this year, we changed the 10km run track to incorporate a wee hill up at picnic point and kept to the river loop, and the 5km run/walk also utilized just the river loop, we also held our raffles prior to the start of the walk/run.
This year we also thought as we have a few gyms in town, we set out a challenge that whichever gym registered the biggest team could do the warm up- This years Gym challenge winner and warm up trainer was Vee from the HIIT factory.
Earlier in the week we had received extreme weather forecasts and were expecting a dumping of rain- this luckily didn’t eventuate but think it scared a few off.
Our numbers were down this year, however with participants and raffles we were still able to fundraise approx. $5000.
