Run report by Danielle Lynch
The temperature was rising on a sunny morning in Cairns. 213 runners were out in force on the Esplanade, alongside volunteers from St Augustine’s College who were taking on the volunteer roles as a team for the third time!
Joel ATKINS was official timekeeper, whilst Ben BANCROFT handed out the tokens to be scanned by Caleb FEARON and Lachlan DOYLE and sorted by Sharyn CROOKES. Standing post at the turning points guiding the runners in the right directions were Kaleb JEYNES and Nick POMMER, who also had a camera in his hand to capture some of the runners at the turn around. Michael FOMIATTI walked at the pack of the pack and made sure all the runners made it across the finish line as tail runner.
There were several first timers and visitors from as far afield as Belfast, Northern Ireland. Filiz MORTIMER hit the 50 milestone today and Junior Kelsey JOWITT hit 10.
