WED Sep 21: Kick the Kilos leaderboard

THE Sunshine Coast is still in the lead with the number of kilometres racked up in our Kick the Kilos challenge so far, but it's Gympie runners who are covering the most ground per capita. 

The Southern Downs has overtaken Rockhampton in the per capita stakes, and Coffs Harbour is proving it can play with the big boys. But its fellow New South Welshmen are lagging in the bottom with the Northern Rivers, Clarence Valley and Tweed remaining in the bottom half of both leaderboards. Time to kick it up a gear, folks! 

Remember to tell your friends and family to join your local club to fight for your town pride!
