A riot of colour greeted fin­ish­ers at this year’s New­man Family Fun Run.

More than 150 peo­ple crossed the line at the event, pre­sented by Act Be­long Com­mit at this year’s Fortes­cue Fes­ti­val week­end in New­man.

Hosted at Goanna Oval, the fun run in­cluded four dif­fer­ent course lengths: half-marathon, 7km, 4km and a 2.4km family course.

Shire of East Pil­bara pres­i­dent Lynne Craigie said the shire never tired of host­ing fit­ness and sport­ing events.

“We are acutely aware of how im­por­tant health and well­be­ing is for a com­mu­nity to grow and thrive,” she said.

“The peo­ple of New­man al­ways im­press me with their per­sonal com­mit­ment to their fit­ness and health, for them­selves and their fam­i­lies, so I of­fer my sin­cere thanks to ev­ery­one who ei­ther com­peted or vol­un­teered to make sure this event was a suc­cess.

“In par­tic­u­lar, I con­grat­u­late the win­ners of each event for a job well done.”

The fun run was spon­sored by Health­way and BHP.
