Runners and walkers take to the streets
Registrations are open for the Mount Runners and Walkers Half Marathon.
In a post on Facebook, the organisers say registration is open at Mount Surf Club.
"Come and sign up (bit of rain never hurt anyone) or collect your number," reads the post.
"Our smiley clubbies are ready to get you sorted for your race."
