MEGA GALLERY: Bendigo Bank Dragon Mile, 2014

Duncan makes Mile hat-trick

THERE were some grimaces as some approached the finish line, but for most there were plenty of smiles at the end of their runs in the Bendigo Bank Dragon Mile on Easter Sunday.

The 28th edition of the athletics classic drew athletes from near and far to contest the mile (1609m) or the mini-mile (800m).

Changes to the route for the Bendigo Advertiser-sponsored gala parade meant those in the mile faced the tough climb up View Street.

The open titles were won by Upwey's Melissa Duncan and Altona's Jack Rayner.
