These awesome kids all took off with great enthusiasm and while some needed to hitch a ride on their parents backs,  they all completed the course in under an hour! Great effort for little legs!

It was the perfect temperature this week and the atmosphere on the course was fantastic with many runners cheering on and high fiving the little ones which they absolutely loved!

Kane Gostling, William Wang, Stephen Powley and Katrina Palmer all got a new personal best this week which is an amazing effort!
