Team This is the way arrived at Fort Sherman (to board the boat from the mouth of the Panama canal) on 5th October 2020. This completed region 1 of the circumpolar race around the world in a total of 35 days. A little slower than needed for the 12-month gold buckle, but a lot of the team members live in California and had a week to ten days of not being able to run due to the poor air quality from the forest fires.
I managed to complete 305.84 miles over the course of the region (finishing 293rd of 2003 runners), and got to see my teammates start on region 2 in Colombia on the same day we finished (my 8 miles for the day counted towards region 1). A small change in personnel with two runners dropping out having brought us home with their final 16 miles, but another two joining for the next 3,094 miles from Colombia to Peru.
Onwards and further South!
