2019 fun run ends on high note

In Port Moresby, as anticipated, thousands turned up for the family-oriented event at Ela Beach with no major mishap reported.

Residents arrived at the Paga Ring Road as early as 4am for the 6.30am start.

A sea of yellow snaked its way from the road adjacent to the APEC House all the way down to the end of Ela Beach Road as well as up Musgrave St.

The disciplined forces of PNG Defence Force, Police and Correctional Services made sure their presence was felt as they maintained control from start to finish.

Over K400,000 to PNGOC

Over K400,000 was committed on February 14th, marking a three-year sponsorship package.

SP managing director, Stan Joyce, said their association with the PNG Olympic Committee goes back as early as the 1980s, during the days of the Pepsi Fun Run.

“That partnership endures. And it endures because of the important ingredients in any partnership, which is trust and respect,” said Joyce.

“And I’m very pleased to say that SP Brewery continues that partnership because we trust the organisations involved, and we have a mutual respect of each other.”
