Dragon Run 2010 (Hong Kong)

[Editor: Last year the Aussies made a clean sweep of the podium, Shannon Eckstein winning his first ever international long distance surfski race and Jeremy Cotter and Tim Jacobs coming 2nd and 3rd respectively.  A full house of South African paddlers will be there in November to prevent this happening again!]

Take a technically challenging course, add some of the world's best elite surfski paddlers, mix in a dash of hectic weather and you've got the Dragon Run - "definitely the most competitive race this year," said Dawid Mocke who came fifth after hitting the wall some 5km from the finish.

The Dragon is Building up Steam…

"The first year we had 48 paddlers, including 6-7 ‘elite' guys," said race organizer Andy Orr. "Last year we had 86 paddlers including about 15 guys who fall into the elite category.

 "This year we think we'll have 130 doing the long course and 30 doing the short course. You have seen our paddler list, and it looks like we will have around 30 elite level paddlers."
