Runners of all ages enjoyed a Sunday morning run in sunny conditions during the 2019 BRAC 2 Beach Fun Run.

The event, which was held last Sunday, saw more than 100 competitors run, jog or walk between the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre and Cable Beach.

Competitors were given the option of either the 4km or 8km route, with all rewarded with a medal and some well-earned fruit and water at the finish line.

In the 4km event, Ryley Smith was the winner of the junior boys with a time of 17:45.86, while Olivia Forster took out the junior girls in 19:19.94.
