Shelly Park School once again won the Primary School’s Cup in Sunday’s Howick Rotary Fun Walk & Run which started on Stockade Hill.

Somerville Intermediate won the Intermediate Cup taking if off Farm Cove Intermediate, the previous holders.

There were three courses – one for serious runners, one for primary school children and a third for the intermediates.

Eight primary and four intermediate schools entered teams.

Some chose to run and make it a personal challenge and perhaps a training run for a major event.

Schools had their own races with the cup winner the first school to have four runners home.

There were a good number of dogs out with their owners.

Quite a few chose to run or walk with a pushchair. One of the early runners back was racing with his pushchair.

There was great community spirit with Howick Rotarians setting up and witnessing a beautiful sunrise over Stockade Hill.

“It was wonderful to see Howick families participating and exercising together,” a Rotary spokesperson said.
