Wanganui get your running shoes on (and some fancy dress) ready for the ‘Property Brokers Round the Bridges Fun Run’ next weekend!

Its the 40th annual event with all of the proceeds going to Plunket. $3100 were raised last year and that amount is ready to be beaten this year.

Organiser GenĂ© Toyne said there is always a focus on fun and this year the aim is to create a “carnival atmosphere.”

“There will be live bands, a sausage sizzle and we are encouraging participants and their supporters to wear fancy dress.”

The Round the Bridges run/walk will start at Kowhai Park on Sunday, May 21 and races will have staggered starts from 9am to 10am. Cost of entry is $2 for children aged 5 to 12 and $5 for entrants 13 years and over.

To register email gene.toyne@wanganuichronicle.co.nz or call 06 349 0710 extension 50943.
