The weather for this event was cold and wet even though the forecast was for an improvement later in the day. The marathon run and walk starts were in the dark and the rain and wind through most of the morning would have made this a very uncomfortable event. The half marathon, 10k and kids 1 mile races all started in rainy conditions and I have no doubt that many would have preferred to be at home in front of a roaring fire with a cup of hot chocolate and a gingernut. The photo of the kids in their animal suits was irresistible and even though it isn’t obvious there were hoards of rug-rats behind these two. In the end the persistent rain driven by a strong southerly wind forced me to abandon the photography and seek shelter in the stadium. Let’s hope the weather gods will be kinder next year.
