Seven teams have raised $2500 for a local charity by participating in the Duchess Dusk to Dawn last weekend.
Teams took part in the 100 kilometre night run from Duchess to Mount Isa to raise funds for the Sisters of the North charity who support farmers in North West Queensland affected by the February flood.
Gecko Outdoor Sports hosted the event with organiser Alison Whitehead deeming the event a huge success.
"It was a fantastic night and we were so lucky with the weather that it had warmed up a little bit," Ms Whitehead said.
"All teams finished within 12 and a half hours and saw a challenge between the first three teams with a Bitta This Bitta That finishing the run first in seven hours 40 minutes.
"Second was Isa Dragons 13 minutes behind (7.53), followed by Pokeys Pals finishing in 7.56."
Ms Whitehead said it was always a super fun and enjoyable night.
"Everyone dresses up and cheers each other on and makes a great event to raise money for charities," she said.
"Its great to encourage people to get out of their comfort zones and push the boundaries."
Best dressed team of the event was the SWATT (Sprinters, Walkers and Trash Talkers) team who were dressed in tutus and bright pink wigs.
"It was initially an all female team but due to a runner getting sick they had to recruit a male who also got in the spirit of costume," Ms Whitehead said.
"I love this event and I look forward to hosting it again next year."
