Make sure to support & follow the Thule Adventure Team that is currently racing on TIME ATAC pedals in the Costa Rica Adventure Race Championship Finals! Allez team Thule!! Photos du journal 200 km are achieved after 36 hours of racing!
The Thule team did a quarter of the total route.
The first night race took place on kayaks. Leading from the section, the team paddled and looking the Seagate team in the mirrors for more than 2/ 3 of the section . The New Zealander team, very comfortable in this discipline, took the first position to finish the section 15 minutes before Thule . Check all smiles and fit for Thule team in the morning, they did not seem to be worried about the lead taken by Seagate.
Then, the "small" Trek 27 km in the jungle has to cross the Osa Peninsula . The teams were forced to take their necessary navigation equipment for the next section .
At this moment , they are on a section of 65 km in the largest mangrove reserve in Latin America. It is a mixed kayaking and trekking . They are faced with a maze of waterways . Still orientation and night , the team will make a portage kayak on a deserted path of more than 10 km. Surely he does not regret being left with carts with wheels on their backpack on the previous trek !
The estimated best time is from 15h to achieve this " adventurer " section. It belongs to the top 3 of the longest sections in terms of duration .
Currently , the GPS of team Seagate does not update on the website so it is impossible to know if Thule is behind or front.
