Last year Angela Hoppe decided to enter a team from Mooloolaba State School. It attracted a massive response, and entries have increased again this year. Fifteen staff members are participating in 2018.
“The kids have really stepped up their training this year with running clubs several times a week before school and on weekends. The energy they bring to these sessions is amazing,” Hoppe said. Other schools to attract strong entries are Buderim Mountain State School, and Immanuel Lutheran College.
The biggest team will be Halcyon Communities with more than 200 entries, while other sizeable groups will include Rockers for Knockers, Running Chicks and Roosters, as well as Intraining.
