The 2018 Byron Bay Lighthouse run was underpinned by great community spirit as roughly $20,000 was raised for charity as 500 runners braved the inclement weather last weekend.
‘We were pretty lucky with the rain. We only had a small fall while the actual race was on. We got a good window,’ race organiser Lisa Parkes said.
‘We raised roughly $20,000 and we couldn’t have done it without the community support we get. It was just incredible. The volunteers are incredible and we have got really good feedback again. Everybody really enjoys the fun vibe of the event,’ she said.
Local Matt Slee charged around the 10km course in 35’11’’, while Nikki Dryden, the quickest female, got around in 44’43”.
