It was a wet Saturday morning for the Rotary Run for Rwanda this year; nevertheless, many hardy runners braved the weather, including more than 40 kids (and their parents) at 8:30 a.m. to run the 1.5 kilometre race. The 10 km and 5 km runs and walks were well patronised and it was great to see quite a few new faces lined up beside the loyal regulars.
Many thanks go to our stalwart volunteers, to our generous financial sponsors and to the local businesses who supply us with water, muffins, fruit and juice boxes.
Winners were as follows:
Kids 1.5 km: Finlay Boggan and Arianna Lunn
