These images were taken (but not used) for a story and photo feature that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on Monday 8th October 1988. "Fun run fans fired up."

"Super harriers Peter Wrigley and Gary Kapluggin must be the keenest, or the maddest, runners in the Manawatu. The pair cleaned up at the "Evening Standard" - Palmerston North Joggers Club annual run for fun yesterday shortly after completing a 23km warm-up trot around the Mangahou Dam block."

"Wrigley, winner of the Hawke's Bay marathon in August and the Ashhurst club's senior title on Saturday, was the first across the line in the 10.6km event in 34m 4s, while Kapluggin streeted the 3km field in 9m 52s."

Around 2000 people competed in the event in either the short 3km or the full 10.6km course, including 120 army cadets from Waiouru.

Proceeds from the entry fees and sponsorship for the charity event went to the Heart Foundation's Manawatu branch and the YMCA.
