The morning arrived and after driving through the fog and flocks of kangaroos I reached a clear summit and couldn't help but reach for the camera to snap the sights from Huon Hill that morning.
Runners had been eagerly awaiting the Series opener and weather was the first of many happenings that bought smiles to everyones faces.
We had record numbers and records broken.
Thanks to all our sponsors and partners, the race precinct took on its usual carnival atmosphere.
Well done to all competitors who certainly tackled the Huon Course with courage. Its a tough course and if you conquered it then in my opinion your ready for McFarlanes … It too is tough…. and yes it's longer, but it's no meaner.
Scroll below, I've loaded some features of the Race 1 race day happenings including a link to the results and series standings.
Sneak peak images from the Adrenalin Earth reel
