It was a glorious morning for the tens of thousands of competitors taking on the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays yesterday.
About 30,000 people walked, ran and rolled the 8.4km course from Auckland CBD to St Heliers Bay.
Participant Matt George had his hands full with some extra-special supporters, taking daughters Natalia, 5 and Symya, 6, along for the ride.
The feat earned him extra "daddy points", Mr George said.
