On Saturday, chilly conditions and grey skies failed to deter those getting stuck into the Pretty Muddy Kids, five kilometre and 10 kilometre races.

But on Sunday it was a much brighter outlook, with blue skies and sunshine for the fundraisers tackling the Race for Life runs.

"It's the first year that men have been taking part so we've had a lot of family groups," she said. "It's been a really nice family atmosphere here. We've had a lot of men wearing pink and tutus, we've had dogs in tutus - the whole family."
