2019 Camden Haven King of the Mountain a success

Spirits were high as over 200 athletes ran, walked and stumbled to the top of North Brother Mountain on August 18.

Taking on the Camden Haven's premier peak, most had a smile on their dial as they crossed the finish line.

The five kilometre run or walk is a major fundraiser for the Camden Haven Surf Life Saving Club and club vice-president, Ben Hosick, said the club was pleased with how the day turned out.

"It has been an amazing morning with the conditions perfect for those attempting to climb our mountain," Mr Hosick said.

"We had no major issues with people making it to the finish line and it was fantastic to see lots of new faces taking part this year.

"Last year Tony Wright was our event ambassador and this year to see him cross the line was pretty phenomenal."

King of the Mountain was Thomas Merkus who won Prince of the Mountain in 2018 followed by Claire Bradshaw who was crowned Queen of the Mountain.

Trent Alley took out Prince of the Mountain and Brooke Hosgood finished first in the girls to claim Princess of the Mountain.

"Congratulations to all the athletes for coming along and being part of the day," he said.

"Also a massive thank you has to go to all our wonderful volunteers and those who donated time along with our sponsors who helped make today possible."
