Thank you for Ooty!

Thanks to all the runners who came out in large numbers to the Go Heritage Run – Ooty. We had nearly 500 folks, of which close to 100 were students, and more than 200 from outside Ooty. It was great to see families and kids take part and show that age is not a limitation at all – the youngest participant was 3 years old and the oldest nearly 85! Hope the run made heritage a little more fun for all of you and you will come back to a Go Heritage Run again.
