The sun came out for Kaikoura Suburban School’s annual Whale Run.

Organiser Michelle Ormsby said, despite the recent wet weather, the sun came out for the annual half-marathon run or walk, with shorter options for the less ambitious.

‘‘The day was great and we were so fortunate with the weather. While it was cold and windy, at least the sun shone and it was dry.’’

Once again, competitors enjoyed some stunning scenery, as they ran and walked through the Kaikoura countryside, while Mt Fyffe, complete with a fresh dumping of snow, provided a stunning backdrop at the finish line.

Competitors of all ages lined up, with Alastair Campbell, at 84, being the oldest.

Once the running and walking was complete, competitors were able to sit back and enjoy the family atmosphere, with the barbecue, cake stall and coffee cart doing ‘‘a roaring trade’’.
