And yearly, people of all ages, race and walks of life, participate in this biggest community social event.
It doesn’t matter how far they live. 4am is not much of a big deal to leave the comforts of their bed and join in on the fun.

Vernda Rumints & Shirley Jack
Vernda and Shirley reside at Nine-Mile, just outside the heart of Port Moresby.
Every Wednesday at 4pm, the two girls run the distance from Nine-Mile to Malolo Estate.
