Com­peti­tors set chal­lenge

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport - Ac­tiv's So­phie Scott, Re­nee Lup­ton, Si­mon Evans, Ross Clark and Sue Hew­son are look­ing for­ward to this weekend's City to Surf.

Or­gan­is­ers are get­ting ready for this weekend’s Chevron City to Surf for Ac­tiv, with com­peti­tors set to take on 4km or 12km cour­ses in the name of fundrais­ing.

Sun­day’s event will take off from Barnard Park and Ac­tiv Bus­sel­ton team leader So­phie Scott said the group was aim­ing to make the lo­cal event one of the best of all the City to Surf sites across WA.

Ms Scott said the City to Surf — the big­gest fundraiser for Ac­tiv — was well sup­ported in Bus­sel­ton and in­cluded a team from Ac­tiv among the rac­ers. Ac­tiv cus­tomer Ross Clark said Sun­day’s race would be the first time he had taken part in the City to Surf, and had pre­pared for the day by walk­ing around town and ex­er­cis­ing at the gym.

On­line reg­is­tra­tions close at midday on Satur­day, but or­gan­is­ers will be at Barnard Park pavil­ion from 9am to 5pm to­mor­row for reg­is­tra­tions and bib col­lec­tion.

Ms Scott said any­one who would like to vol­un­teer on the day was also en­cour­aged to come down and reg­is­ter their in­ter­est. The first race will take off on Sun­day at 8am.
