FOGGY and rainy weather has prompted a warning from Pink Lads organisers to watch out for runners on the highway between Orange and Bathurst on Tuesday.
The group of men are taking part in a run from Narromine to Sydney to join the start of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival in Sydney to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
The Pink Lads team members are Glenn Gorick, Mal Butterfield, Mark Goodwin and John Manton, and will be joined by blind athlete Nathan Johnston.
Mr Gorick established the men's group Pink Lads who get together and wear pink to take part it ultra marathons and long distances to bring awareness about the McGrath Foundation.
"Over the last few years we have raised over $50,000 for the McGrath Foundation through various challenges," Mr Gorick said.
"When we last took part in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival last year and we raised over $4000."
"Whilst I can't say that we actually enjoy the time on the road due to the soreness and fatigue and up against in harsh elements, it is a great adventure where we meet great Australians - we get to speak with amazing people who support us including the regional Breast Care Nurses.
The Pink Lads left Narromine on Sunday for their 460 kilometre run and will arrive in Bathurst tonight.
From there they will pass through Lithgow, Penrith, Sutherland, Milson's Point in the lead up to the Blackmores Bridge Run, as part of Blackmores Sydney Running Festival on Sunday.
