It was a bit chilly and I had plenty of layers on including my beanie and gloves. The view from the stand I was working on was magnificent....and when people started to arrive it looked like this...We were flat out all morning handing out timing bands to the runners and number bibs to those that hadn't registered online. There was over 2400 participants in 3 events, 4km run, 8km run and a 4km walk.
Here are the walkers at the start line, it was a beautiful day. (Photo from ABC website) . Helen and her girls are in there somewhere, one had the most gorgeous painted face and I'm really sorry for pulling those cute plaits!!
When the walkers returned to the finish line we handed them all a showbag and a drink. The national event raises money for breast cancer research and Hobart's event raised around $30,000. Well Done Hobart!!!
I really enjoyed helping out and I might make it a regular event on my calendar.
