I am having another crack (7th) at the Hawkesbury Classic on 27th October - next weekend.
This Ultra Marathon attracts over 500 entrants and is a 111km overnight paddle from Windsor to Brooklyn. It starts in the late afternoon and ideally finishes for me around 3:30am. I completed the first one when the event started back in 1977 in around 20 hours aged 15 - this will be my 7th.

More importantly, this event raises much needed funds to support cancer research – specifically for blood cancers which include Leukaemia and Lymphoma. At this stage in life most or all of us have been touched in some way by cancer.
