ABS Centenary Fun Run Results


Yesterday's ABS Centenary Fun Run was a success, with a record 693 entrants taking to the track to run or walk around Lake Ginninderra. Together they raised over $3,300 for the ACT Cancer Council.

The success of the fun run keeps growing, with this year an increase from 638 people last year, and 527 in 2003.

The record number of participants is testimony to the growing support for this respected local charitable event.
