Universities Creek Race (as a spectator)

Unfortunately not yet being a student meant I could not compete in the Universities creek race, but I went along to support my friends who were, and took lots of pictures! It was a pretty fun weekend, once again with very little in the way of water, but in contrast to my last Scotland (and Wales) trip, the ground was no longer covered in snow, but it was warm and dry… resulting in a few grass fires everyone rushed to help put out!

The first day and stage was located on Triple Step of the Etive, with a few targets people had to touch on their way down the course to make things more interesting.

There was a round for non-students (which I didn’t know about until it was too late!) with a no paddle round on Triple Step and a paddles but no deck round on the Allt A’Chaorainn.

There was an amount of rock shuffling before the actual Allt A’Chaorainn race stage due to the water being so low people were having to push themselves along on their hands. After this everyone piled down to get their times. Their times over the two Triple Step runs and two Allt A’Chaorainn runs were added up to give the overall results.
