Hundreds take on fun run

SUNDAY, January 7, saw 407 participants in the annual Waratah to Sandy Point Beach Fun Run.
There was a nice SSW 12 knot wind to assist the serious runners.
Of these numbers, the youngest runners were aged six and the oldest runner was 77 years old with lots of families getting involved.
The event was proudly sponsored by the Toora Foster and Welshpool Community Bank/Bendigo bank, with Sharon DeMaria, branch manager, speaking on their behalf.
The awards were presented by Eastern Victoria Region MLC Melina Bath, who generously supports local communities.
Thanks go to the Waratah Beach Surf Life Saving Club for providing first aid, use of the facilities and the barbecue and drinks at the end of the race.
Thanks to all the local sponsors who kindly supported the annual event.

Off and running: hundreds took to the beach to participate in the annual Waratah to Sandy Point Beach Fun Run on Sunday.
