Off and running! Meitar Night Race

.

The yearly Meitar Night Race came down my street yesterday! 
At 6:12 pm it was not yet night but at least the setting sun was at their back. 


Running either the 5 K or 10 K can't be all that easy on Meitar's many hills.


The first wave was mainly kids.
They made a circle at the cellist roundabout and headed back.
The adults ran on around our town's ring road (map here).


Police kept wheeled traffic off the designated streets from 6:00 to 10:30 pm.
That also meant no buses on the regular bus route.
And residents were asked not to park on the street.
The race takes a lot of planning.
Glad I was only taking pictures.

That first shot is my favourite of these. We have a race weekend coming up in a week; a lot of people come out for it.

Our races are usually timed to avoid the really hot sun, but it's not always successful.
