Hundreds hit beach for fun run

LIKE a scene from Chariots Of Fire, hundreds of athletes of all ages, shapes and sizes hit the Park Beach sand for the Australia Day Fun Run.

But it was a star from yester-year, Tim Kitching, adding to his athletic legend with a run more than a minute-and-a-half below the old mark.

In total, 304 runners came to Coffs Harbour Surf Life Saving Club to celebrate the birthday of the nation with the oldies more than holding their own against younger rivals.
