Organisers made the safety call to abandon the road biking stage but the paddle and trail run still went ahead as planned. Even though the river Bure was threatening to burst its banks.
Sarah Bradford, the event organiser said: "We have never seen sportsmanship like it.
"Volunteers were standing in the rain for over three hours, paddle board marshals kept people's spirits high on the water and everyone crossed the line with an enormous sense of achievement!"
The event raised more than £650 for Nelsons Journey, a Norfolk charity supporting children and young people who have experienced the death of a significant person.
