Despite shortened course, about 250 runners turned out for the Run 4 Fun on Sunday.LUKE MCMANUS June 19, 2014 3:32am
Hundreds of competitors pounded the pavement for the Run 4 Fun event in Moama on Sunday.
About 250 runners from all ages competed in the 3km, 5km and 10km distances, with the 3km event reserved for those under 13.
Due to the inclement weather on Friday and Saturday, the 5km and 10km courses were shortened, which event organiser Kelli Johns said was disappointing, but failed to quell the enthusiasm and fun had by many of the entrants.
‘‘We didn’t get the numbers that we wanted, I think the weather may have turned a few people away,’’ Ms Johns said.
‘‘We usually hold the event six or seven weeks earlier, when the weather’s a bit nicer.
‘‘But we’re really happy with the how it went and keen to do it all again next year.’’
About $5000 was raised for the Moama Recreation Reserve’s facility upgrade, while $5 of each registered child was donated back to their respective school.
Ms Johns thanked the many volunteers who donated their time to help marshall, time-keep and man the water stations, and said the event would not have been possible without the welcomed assistance.
