|Congratulations to the winner of the event|
Photos available at actionpactpix website
All photos have been divided into finish times according to the big yellow clock at the finish so you need to work out what time you crossed the line to find your pic. There were a couple of people tucked in behind others, so I tried to include those people in the background of another picture so you could at least find your own pic. I must confess that I did leave the finish line for a few minutes and may have missed a person later in the morning.
Hopefully next year the event will run again and those that completed each of the shorter events might even set their target at going one better next year! I was inspired to enter next year, if it goes ahead and take in the great scenery and get my best "run face" on as well.
Keep scrolling down to see a few more pictures on the day, but if you want to see the whole bunch, then click on the actionpactpix - Bairnsdale Running Festival link, and find your face or the faces of your friends and let them know that they can see their pic....Congratulations to all who ran on the day and met their own goals and challenges, as it is always an exciting and nervous time just rocking up to a "FUN" run or half marathon....Who did put the word FUN into that?
Great to see the looks on the faces of those who achieved something special today and that is the best part about standing at the finish line for nearly two hours :)
