About 80 people turned up on Saturday for the second Reapers’ Run of Shame, the 1 kilometre “walk, run or stagger” in aid of NGO ABCs and Rice, and more than $1400 was raised
Organiser and ABCs and Rice strategic planner Monica Butler was delighted with how the day went. Race winner was Globalteer’s Charlie Pomroy, who, she said, was in keeping with the shame theme by cheating his way to the finish-line.
“He shamefully cheated by catching a moto-dop, but as there are no rules this was perfectly acceptable,” she said. “Second place was Madi Stott, a volunteer at ABCs and Rice, and third was long-time expat Dylan Barry.”
Members of the Hash House Harriers led by Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa general manager Hanno Stamm again took part, with one of them, Sophea Chan, taking the prize for the Best Fake Boobies.
Other prizes were handed out for Prettiest Lady, Best Outfit and Craziest Outfit, won by Ryan Ahlers who was dressed as a Russian complete with fur hat.
“We were very fortunate with the weather as the sun appeared for the first time that day just as the registration desk opened,” said Butler, “Although the participants dressed as a Russian and a gladiator would've preferred a little less warmth. It was a fantastic day filled with smiles, laughter and silliness.
“There was even an impromptu fashion parade at the Warehouse afterwards. I can't wait for next year's run.”
