Race2: River Rush

A voted "Favourite" from 2013.
Saturday April 26

We have decided to recap one of the favourites of last year - River Rush. Starting at the South Townsville Boat Ramp, competitors race down the Ross River paddling through mangroves, muddy water and dodging all sorts of obstacles on the way. A sense of relief is felt once the open ocean is reached and as they head towards Magnetic Island before turning and finishing at Pallarenda Beach.
