LOSING those extra kilos in readiness for summer has been made a lot easier.

This year, the Rotary Club of Grafton Midday Inc has partnered with Maclean based Bodyrock Fitness and Explode Personal Training Grafton, with the support of the Healthy Clarence Communities Project, to run the Clarence Valley Biggest Loser competition.

Today organisers begin to weigh contenders for the title at weigh-in stations at the Grafton Community Centre and Bodyrock Fitness in Townsend.

The entry fee either as a group or individual is a bargain, paying for training and support throughout the competition.

Competition organiser Lois Robinson, from Grafton Midday Rotary, said about 10 teams plus several individuals had already nominated.

"In the past we've averaged 70-100 competitors," she said.

"This time, with the Lower Clarence involved, we're looking at doing even better."

But it's only early days as competitors have all this week to organise a weigh-in to enter.

"There's nothing like a bit of friendly rivalry to get people setting their weight loss goals and if you combine that with the chance to win $1000 for your favourite charity, this year's competition is sure to be highly contested," Ms Robinson said.

"Team entries are encouraged with groups of 4-7 people able to enter under a group flat fee of $200 or single entry is $50 per person."

Ms Robinson said registration forms were available at the weigh-in, or by prior appointment at the Ray White Grafton office, from Bodyrock Fitness or by contacting Lois Robinson on 0429 930 221 or by email: lois.robinson@commander360.com.

The final weigh-in will be on Saturday, November 17.
