Men, women, children and some with their pets, flocked in to the Sir John Guise Stadium as early as 2am to prepare for the event.
By 6am, a sea of yellow had engulfed the roads of Port Moresby as city residents walked, jogged and ran the five kilometre route, crossing the finishing line back at the stadium.
Secretary General of the PNG Olympic Committee, Auvita Rapilla, said the turnout at this morning’s Fun Run was overwhelming.
“It’s probably the biggest turnout we’ve ever had. From start to the finish, the whole route was packed with a sea of yellow.
