After three hours Kathy Hannah was pleased to finish her half marathon and Amanda Luani did a personal best of 14km.
The young Fry-Allan girls were impressive, with Tayleigh running 11km and little sister Tahlya walking 4km.
In the relay, Country Coastal team members Felicity Sharp, Charmaine Sharp, Donna Johnson and David Wallace were first home with 68km.
Second were the Gayndah Girls Natasha Roth, Lisa Baker, Erika DeNobrega and Benita Darrow with 66km and third were the Loopies, Louise Newman, Lauren Sparrow, Prue Leng and Suzanne Peiters, completing 55km.
In the walking relay, first place went to the Beautiful Old Ducks with 41km, fol- lowed by Bonnie’s Bods with 37km and third place was Token’s Followers with 29km.
