ORGANISERS are hoping forecast fine weather tomorrow encourage strong entries in the annual Noorat to Terang fun run/walk.
Terang Lions Club spokesman John Keane said the annual event was firmly set on the local calendar, having been run for the past 32 years.
He said the forecast of 25 degrees with a slight breeze and some cloud cover was encouraging.
“It should make for good running conditions,” he said.
“We are expecting about 500 people for the run and the walk. We always seem to get around the 500 mark each year.”
Keane said organisers hoped Kris McCartney would return tomorrow night.
“Kris has won five or six of the last six or seven years, so we would love to see him back and have another go at it,” Keane said.
“Clinton Hall lost his under 13 record to young Tom Hynes a couple of years ago. He still holds his under 15 record though. Tom could be in line to take the under 18 record this year.”
Keane said trophies were up for grabs across a variety of categories, including first family of three, school teams and sporting clubs.
He said buses would leave the Terang RSL hall in Shadforth Street for the starting line in Noorat at 5.45pm, 6pm and 6.15pm, with walkers starting their treks at 6.30pm and the run getting under way at 6.45pm.
Registration is on the night and costs $10 for adults and $2 for children. Walk registration is $5 for adults and $1 for children.
All proceeds go to local charities.
