"It is a significant increase since last year, in addition there are people from outside of the local area who are turning up now which is fantastic for the region's tourism," Mr Barlow said.

"It is hats off to (LAAR event co-ordinator Andrea Ruppik) and the team because a lot of organising goes into the event.

"We're hoping next year we can attract some corporate teams for that social element."

The race featured three legs - a trail bike ride, trail run and kayaking or swimming.
