Christchurch Run To Remember 5 years since the big Quake!

Hard to believe it's 5 years since the big earthquake on the 22nd February 2011. The 10km run organised by Mitre 10 starts in Victoria Park, head on up the sumit road to Rapaki and finishes in Hansen Park in Opawa. The annual event is in remembrance for the 185 people who lost their lives in the quake, with the majority of the proceeds raised going to the Red Cross. A good turnout of 1700 people took part in today’s event which is a little down on last year’s 2200 but that might have something to do with the recent shakes that we have been experiencing or the cricket at Hagley Park.
