There was a change of pace and temperature at this year's Pub2Pub Albury Run.
The fourth annual, nine kilometre event had a focus on families and children who made up a good portion of the 250 who took part on Sunday.
Organiser Brooke Bosse said runners were also glad they weren't running in 30 degrees for the second year.
"At 9am last year the temperature was already at 30 degrees which isn't ideal to be running in," she said.
"So this year it was much cooler and that was something that a lot of the runners were pretty pleased about - it was a perfect temperature for an uphill run.
"We had a great turnout and it was so nice to see the kids do the run as well."
Ms Bosse said the fundraising tally was still being counted.

"The money will once again go to the Albury Wodonga Prostate Cancer Support Group which is really important," she said.
"That is what it is all about but the prize money is there to encourage runners to travel to take part and we saw that again this year.
"Both winners weren't locals and that is encouraging to see that other runners are travelling to take part in the Pub2Pub."
Melbourne's John Portwood took out the men's race, while Echuca's Tarli Bird was the first woman over the line. Ash Hoffmann and Patrick Stow in the men's and Kelli Hoffmann and Michelle Fletcher in the women's came second and third respectively
Ms Bosse said the fundraising total will be posted on social media.
