“Without doubt, the toughest and best thing I have achieved! Competing the 404km, afer only paddling a few kms a day felt like landing on the moon - plus the experience of meeting amazing people who are part of the Murray and visiting communities was very special. I can't wait till November.”
— Emma Innes, MMP 2014 Paddler & number one individual fund-raiser
I enjoy this event because it IS a challenge and yet still manageable - even in my late 60's.
It's an adventure and a good one because it is well supported - on the river - at the check points and at the finish - I feel secure.
