AS Terisa Ashworth prepares for her 30th consecutive Edgell Jog, she has no plans to put away the sneakers just yet.
"I'm going to do it for as many as I can," she said. "I hope I'm 100 and I'm still doing it."
The jog has been a constant for Bathurst Seymour Centre CEO Ms Ashworth during her years as a mother and, now, a grandmother.
"I started it [the Edgell Jog] with my children," she said. "They also enjoyed running. We were doing cross-country events and so forth at that time.
"It was a good thing to do with family."
Both her children Wendy and Barry won their age groups in their younger years, she said.
"And we won some of the parent and child events, which is really nice, but it's not just about winning," she said.
"I think the whole thing is it's a community event and people get to participate.
"Probably about three or four years ago, my biggest grandson, Tyler, actually won the trip to Fiji [a random draw for those who complete the course within a certain time], which was even better."
Ms Ashworth runs about five times a week for the benefits for the mind and body.
"The Sunday that the Edgell Jog is on is actually the final day of Dementia Action Week," she said.
"And some of the strategies of keeping well and healthy and engaged are exercising your body and your brain."
Ms Ashworth has also completed 28 Bathurst Half Marathons and 29 City to Surfs.
