More than 4,500 participants turned out on the 4th of February 2012 to take on the 6.5km (approximate) Sydney Morning Herald Sun Run from Dee Why to Manly. The following day, Sydney put on one of its best days of the summer at Australia’s largest ocean swim, the Sydney Morning Herald Cole Classic. The event was a great success despite the choppy conditions at Manly Beach.
Amongst the competitors over the weekend were 15 enthusiastic ACRF supporters ready to run and swim in their events! A range of ages, abilities, and experience were represented in our supporter team this year – with many taking part in the races in honour of loved ones that had passed away from cancer.
Many of the supporters had a great time making personal bests in their challenge, and many far exceeding their targets for fundraising as well!
Thanks to all our team members – An, Anna, Bruce, Claudia, Georgina & Tori, Hoa, Hosanna, Katrin, Sarah, Sebastian, Smriti & Om, Suellen, Trang – and their wonderful supporters for raising more than $1,500 for cancer research.
