Colour photograph of two Kodak research department employees running down the street as part of 'Roy Jeffrey's 10km Kodak Challenge', a running event held on 07 February 1989. Pictured, at rear: Ron Litjens.
The Challenge appears to have been held at the Coburg Harriers Athletics Club, which was based at the Harold Stevens Athletic Field, at Jackson Reserve on Outlook Road in East Coburg. As well as using the athletics track, the event also included some street running as seen here.
This is one of many photographs in an album of research department events circa 1988-1989.

A sign on the building in the background of this image is for the Coburg Harriers Athletics Club, which was based at the Harold Stevens Athletic Field, at Jackson Reserve on Outlook Road in East Coburg. The presentations in other images of this event in the same album were taken inside a building with running information posters on the wall. Many of the runners were also wearing what appears to be Coburg running club singlets with a club logo. Finally, the Kodak factory is located in Coburg. It is therefore more than likely that the Kodak Challenge event took place at the Coburg Harriers Athletics Club facilities at the Harold Stevens Athletic Field, at Jackson Reserve on Outlook Road in East Coburg.
