Despite a smaller number of teams competing due to the pandemic, the event went smoothly with the sun coming out to welcome teams on the first day. Seven teams competed with two of those making their way from Banja Luka (Dajak Klub and SRK Bosna Zenica). Regular racers Team Tifran entered two teams to the competition.

Despite the rain coming on the Sunday, teams pressed on with the Downriver for this 4th memorial race.
In the end, team Dajak Klub took first place, RK Eko Lim took second and SRK Bosna took third. Overall results here:
