Congratulations to all participants in both races. Despite the FunFest being a wash-out on the previous day due to poor weather conditions, the weather changed in our favour for Sunday and we recieved positive feedback from our runners, who enjoyed the course, and the event being extremely well organized. It was a great day for all the runners. Don't forget this year's Seaside 10k on Oct 7th, in Princes Park, Southport.
