PTA Fun Run 5km route updated + Marshals still needed

In a minor change the route of the five kilometre Fun Run for Saturday 24th March has been altered.

The previous route took in the Boggs Holdings main road which lacks pedestrian footpaths. The revised route now avoids this, making it both safer and requiring fewer marshals on the day.
