Thank you so much for your attendance today.  Together, with race registration fees and on the day donations, we raised $1054.  A big thank you to Jill Lennox for receiving the ‘extra large’ cheque. The real one will be in the mail this week. Provisional results can be found at Race Results.  Please email us at if there are any corrections that need to be made.  Please note also the corrected results for the 5km adult female.  We incorrectly missed the winner Tayla Gunton – sincerest apologies to both Tayla and Kaya. Please also check out the two FB photos albums containing around 350 race photos.

There is one album with place getters and volunteers, and another album with around 270 race photos.  Enjoy and tag away. Check out The Cairns Post today for a great race wrap-up. Congrats to all who made it such a fun and successive event.
