Weather didn't hold runners back
RUNNING: Not even the stormy weather could keep the members of the Fraser Coast Runners and Walkers Club from hitting the pavement this week.
The first 5km event of the year was hosted by the club on Sunday morning at Esa Park.
It wasn’t the best weather for it, with wind and rain providing difficult conditions for those who took part, but they managed to take it in their stride.
The club’s next event is a 10km competitive race and a 5km social race to be held at Ululah Lagoon in Cheapside Street, Maryborough – and they will definitely be hoping for better weather.
It will be held on March 7.
For more information call 4123 1538.
Walkers will kick off at 6.30am and runners will start their race at 7am.
All members and visitors are welcome to attend.
