Annual Cape St Francis/FOSTER fun run a great success in the inclement weather.

The day after Christmas in Cape St Francis hardly felt like a summers day with the fog horn blaring loudly as people woke up to another misty cool morning with little else to do but come and run or walk of the Christmas over indulgence at the annual Resort/Foster fun run.

Fortunately this resulted in a great turn out for the event with families and individuals coming to enjoy the beauty of Cape St Francis and its four wonderful nature reserves that are looked after and maintained by a bunch of volunteers funded by membership fees and fund raising events such as this one.

Runners and walkers eagerly waiting for the race to start

 

The new route carefully planned and marked out by Dane Shaw from the resort was well received by the participants who enjoyed the mix of terrain and scenery whilst shedding some calories. Some     R7 800 was raised through entry fees and the Cape St Francis Resort apart from sponsoring most of the prizes generously donated a further R5 000 to FOSTER giving FOSTER R12 800 which will be put to good use improving the signage in the reserves and replacing some of the no cycling signage vandalised during the season.
