Twelve-year-old India-Rose Wallace (left) and Rhiannon Clutterbuck, 11, brightened up the field in the Property Brokers 39th annual Round the Bridges Fun Run/Walk yesterday.

The girls were awarded the prize for the best dressed.

Between 800-1000 people, both young and old, left Kowhai Park in fine weather but the weather turned wintry soon after the first walkers and runners were on their way.

Money raised from this year's event will go to Birthright Whanganui.
