Running festival attracts 3000

The 2019 Bay to Bay Running Festival saw more than 3000 people run from the Woy Woy waterfront on June 16 to raise funds for Central Coast charities.

The Bay to Bay saw a record number of runners take part in the half marathon, the 12km fun run and the two kilometre kids fun run.

This year a five kilometre fun run/walk was introduced.

Winners were Scott Westcott and Anna Heath who took out first in the Men's and Women's half marathon.

Rose Davies took first in the Women's 12km fun run and Zac Roberts and Melanie McDonald placed first in the Men's and Women's five kilometre event.

North Avoca's Jack Colreavy claimed first in the Men's 12km fun run for the fourth time.

Race director Ms Jenny Barker said the festival committee was hopeful this year's result will break into the six figures given the record participation.

"Last year's festival raised $90,764 for local charities but with this year having the best attendance of the festival yet, we're excited to learn the final figure," Ms Barker said.

"The inclusion of the 5km event as well as the changing in the time of the kids 2km event meant that more families that wanted to run together could and parents that wanted to participate in the half marathon or the 12km event had more time and options to plan their day," she said.

Major charities benefiting from the event include Camp Breakaway, the Central Coast Local Health District and St Brendan's Catholic School's The Hive program.
