Fun run and half marathon a huge suc­cess

Mansfield Courier - - Sport -

AN­OTHER hugely suc­cess­ful Mans­field Half Marathon and Fun Run was held on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4.

There were 35 run­ners in the half marathon, 371 in the 10km which in­cluded 276 stu­dents and teach­ers from Tim­ber­top who we are sure were very com­pet­i­tive.

There were 79 in the 5km, 129 in the 4km walk, and 76 in the 2km and 1km kids’ runs.

A to­tal all up of 690 en­trants took part.

The win­ning school team this year is Mans­field Steiner School, and the com­mu­nity would like to con­grat­u­late them on win­ning $1000.

The stu­dents will have fun de­cid­ing what to spend it on, as it does not go into general rev­enue.

There is fab­u­lous sup­port from the Mans­field com­mu­nity.

A lot of com­peti­tors and Tim­ber­top fam­i­lies travel here from far and wide, a lot from Mel­bourne and sur­rounds and many from in­ter­state.

There are only a few times a year Tim­ber­top par­ents get to meet up and this day is one of them.

Once the run is over they get a few hours to spend with their chil­dren and head to the restau­rants and ea­ter­ies in Mans­field.

The Mans­field Half Marathon and Fun Run web­site has links to Tomato Tim­ing for all re­sults and Geosnap­shot for some fab­u­lous pho­tos.

A Third Hand vol­un­teers who or­gan­ise this event look for­ward to an­nounc­ing how much money was raised once the books are fi­nalised.

OVER THE LINE: There were plenty of kids in­volved in the Mans­field Half Marathon and Fun Run on Novem­ber 4.
