Picturesque coastal town Bermagui was buzzing with physical activity on the weekend, as people from all over came to take part in the annual ReBoot event.
December 4-5 marked ReBoot's seventh annual event and participants travelled from places as far as Canberra and Melbourne to attend.
Organiser Julie Rutherford said the highlight of the weekend was to see everyone participating and having a go.
"There was a family of four that did the swim together, you know, mom, dad, and two teenage kids, that's the sort of thing that's a highlight, as well as people doing well," Ms Rutherford said.
Champions and new record created at 2021 ReBoot event
Among the enjoyment of seeing everyone get involved, was also some excitement as a new record for the No Hills 5km run event was made.
The competitor Russell Dessaix-Chin completed the run in 15 minutes and 59 seconds, followed by Glenn Edmonds, then Adam Stanley.
"We've never had someone run it that fast before, Russ broke the ReBoot record," Ms Rutherford said.
First place winners in the men's and women's category included:
- Camel to Club 7km run - Luke Kelly and Alisa Williams
- No Hills 5km run - Russell Dessaix-Chin and EJ Norris

Highlights of the weekend
Ms Rutherford the highlight of the weekend was to see all the events well attended and seeing people taking part, rather than just who won and what records were broken.
"It was just good to see people out and about really, you know, kids doing the fun run and to see all the participation in events," she said.
In terms of weather Ms Rutherford said they had been lucky to have barely any rainfall during the weekend, compared to the wet weekends leading up to the event.
"I think considering the weekends we've had prior we were pretty lucky, we hardly had any rain and the surf conditions were great," she said.
Despite being down on numbers compared to other years where the event is run during the October long weekend and school holidays, there had been a great level of participation in each event.
"We had a good turnout of people and those who did come had a great time, they enjoyed being out of lockdown," she said.
Down at the Skate, Skoot and BMX competition, kids and teenagers had a lot of fun testing out their tricks and receiving great praise from the audience.
This event featured a younger demographic, surrounded by their families who cheered them on enthusiastically.
The judges on the day were delighted to see kids being safe, wearing helmets and allowing equal space to practice tricks in the skatepark.
A new bike ride from Cobargo to Bermagui was added to the 2021 ReBoot weekend, which proved very popular.
"It was our first time running that event and we had about 21 riders, they all enjoyed it as well. So we're hoping to put that on the ReBoot calendar every year," Ms Rutherford said.
Ms Rutherford said the event wouldn't have been possible without the support from sponsors, volunteers and everyone who came along.
Ms Rutherford said it was nice to see people getting back out, socialising and getting active.
"People enjoyed getting back into community events, mingling with each other and being actually out in the fresh air doing stuff. So, if you judge it on that, the event was a huge success."
