CRAW – week 1

The first week of CRAW (circumpolar race around the world) is over! A short week (that started on Tuesday), but as a team we have managed to log 486.74 miles (including my 8.003 this morning). This places us 19.38% of the way through region 1, just approaching the big left turn at Citrofrut Paso Largo (a fruit juice company) which will take us towards the coast again.

It all started with being sent your CRAW passport, along with an email confirming you’d been granted all of the necessary visas and filled in all of the required forms (which was a nice touch), as well as there being a downloadable race bib with your name and number.

The wizards at CRAW HQ have made a map where you can track where you are as a team, as well as for each individual.

The leading running team has already made it to Guatemala, logging 1,269.85 miles, which is awesome! Their least active runner has logged 70.70 miles, whilst their most active has logged 253.30! They clearly mean business, and it should mean that region 2 as to be opened up soon. In comparison they have run further than all but the top 6 multi-sport teams (the top team is already in Nicaragua).
