About 105 runners took part in the 4km and 12km categories under the banner Elliott’s Army to raise more than $5000 for childhood cancer research.

Dressed in their Eliott’s Army hats, T-shirts and tattoos, the group also wore purple heart tattoos and dedicated the run to three-year-old Sindi Simic who lost her battle, with a rare form of brain cancer last week.

Almost 30,000 entrants took part in the event this year, raising a record $1.2 million.

Locals Moira Clay, Karen Branch, Haley Fazzino, Luis LePegna, and Emily, Rick, Hudson and Harry Parish ran in Elliott’s Army.
