Rain eases in time for Ring Rd Run

REGISTRATIONS may have started slowly but they certainly didn't end that way, with almost 1000 people competing in the Ring Road Run.

About 950 people from Bundaberg and beyond braved the wet, the wind and the cold to take part in yesterday's 5km fun run and walk.

Event spokeswoman Ainsley Gatley said organisers were thrilled with the event.

"We're very happy with the registrations and with the run," Mrs Gatley said.

"We're already talking about next year."

After almost an entire night of rain, the wet weather eased just long enough for the race to go ahead, with rain beginning again shortly after the race had finished.

"It did the same thing for us last year," Mrs Gatley told the NewsMail.

Another similarity to last year's race, which a backpacker won, was that the two winners were not from the Bundaberg region.

Sunshine Coast runners Neil Lavinsky and Chloe Turner claimed top spot in the adult categories.
