Competitors in this year’s National Wife Carrying Championship were very keen for the water obstacle as temperatures hit the mid-30s at Singleton Show on Saturday afternoon.
Eight couples competed this year and there were plenty of thrills and spills and one failure to finish the course due to a wrong turn at the finish line.
Compere Antony Partridge ,himself a previous winner at Singleton, kept the crowd entertained with his running commentary and advice to competitors.

In second place from Scone were Andrew Thomas and Kairsten Marley and in third Craig Campbell and Katherines Watts from Port Macquarie.
