Umkomaas River Marathon

Next weekend will be raced one of the big events of end of the summer in South Africa, the always spectacular Umkomaas River Marathon. This edition of 2012 looks so far to the sky looking for some rain, as water level seems to be quite low just three days before the start. But it's always a tricky, hard river to paddle and some of its rapids, like "number 1" on the second day, has quickly become legends among river paddlers. You can check at this great video of the 2011 edition why its only name seems scary...
