Good Fri­day fun­sters run for buns

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

HOT cross buns and a cou­ple of kilo­me­tres run is how Can­non­vale starts a long week­end.

Fit­ness Venue hosted its an­nual Good Fri­day ‘run for buns’ and com­peti­tors with two and four legs joined in on the fun.

The long run­ning tra­di­tion has been part of Fit­ness Venue since the Can­non­vale branch’s in­cep­tion back in the year 2000.

And age was no bar­rier with kids get­ting in on the fun too.

This year lo­cal baker and gym fre­quenter Kim Ho­gan do­nated the hot cross buns.

Club mas­ter trainer Kelsey McCarthy said the event was the per­fect way to start a long week­end.

“On pub­lic hol­i­days we try and run an event as peo­ple nor­mally in­dulge over the hol­i­days,” she said.

Around 50 peo­ple braved the av­er­age weather con­di­tions to run a 5km or just un­der 10km cir­cuit around the sail­ing club and back.

“It’s good to get ev­ery­one to­gether and ac­tive,” she said.
