Merimbula's Mother's Day Classic raises funds and awareness

A trickle of pink whirled its way through Merimbula on Sunday morning as part of the Mother’s Day Classic fun run and walk.

More than 100 people, mostly donned in pink, hit the track to help raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

A minute’s silence was held before legs were warmed up to the tune of ‘Nutbush City Limits’.

Narooma’s Kirby Mackie, who was pushing her son in a pram, took out the 10km women’s run, while Scott Gavens was first past the post in the men’s.

Amanda Bradford and Nigel Ayling took out the 5km women’s and men’s titles respectively.

It is expected about 120,000 people took part in the Classic across Australia.
