The half-marathon will start at 630, the 10 kay at 7.30 am, followed by the 5km run at 9am, and the 1 km event at 10.30 am.

Runs will start and finish at the Big Penguin in the main street.

Event co-ordinator Kelly Selby says the event is almost sold out, but she’s not surprised, given the location.
