THE annual Mareeba Lions Club Metrogaine once again proved to be a popular affair as runners turned out to the starting line at Arnold Park on Sunday for this year’s race.

Tanya Barker from Essential Fitness got the crowd warmed up with an energetic workout before they set out to scour the town in search of specific markers which they record and return to the start area.

Once again, veteran runners Sandro Soncin and Charlton Best took home the honours after completing the 10km course in one hour and 20 minutes with a maximum score.
