Receiving the trophy and the prize from Mosgiel Rotary Club project co-ordinator Fraser Ellis at the second annual Run the Runway at Dunedin Airport yesterday morning is James Pemberton, of Dunedin.

Mr Pemberton knocked off the early morning run of about 4km (including the runway, taxi and takeoff) in 15 minutes 13 seconds, winning a Mainland Air training flight.

Taieri Communities Facility Trust chairwoman Irene Mosley said about 150 runners and walkers raised between $4000 and $5000 towards Mosgiel’s much anticipated new pool, part of the $10,000 fundraising commitment of the Mosgiel Rotary Club.

The event, which started last year to raise money for the new pool, was here to stay and would raise money for other good causes in the future, Ms Mosley said.
