Below are a selection of images from the event. We were lucky have Brian Redmond (http://www.redmondphotography.com/), local boy Andy Mc and Ross Harding on hand to capture the action.

The race was not without risk and some racers paid the price for pushing too hard. The image shows Colin Wong in the pool below Big Eas. If you look closely you can see the swimmer behind the waterfall curtain. The small field and invitational element of the race allowed to organisers to deal with incidents like this quickly and effectively.

Kev Egan - he had run the river about ten times that week, maybe this may have helped him in guiding his team to the win? Photo BR.
