First up and racing in the one-mile fun run was 12-year-old Millie McClagish, who came home a fantastic 1st lady and 5th overall.

Next home was ‘over 60’ Colin Simpson testing out his injured heel after cycling to the event.

Close behind were Morgan Harrison (49:10), Mark Mattless (50.59 PB) Teresa Rodrigues (51.48 PB), Robert Morley (53:39),Marc Martin (53:41), Chris Garner (55:24) Dee McClagish (57:30), Jo Garner (57.51), Stephanie Clark (60.35), Anne Marie Utting (65:57) and Chris Anderson (70:00).

The support from friends and family created a great atmosphere and was appreciated by all, helping Millie get the loudest cheer at her presentation.
