RacingThePlanet: Ecuador 2015 Blogs

Stage 1
27-Jul-2015 07:23:09 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Great first day but challenging! Team NZ came in 2nd place in the teams category after 7.5hrs on out feet and despite the fact we had a little navigation error which cost us about 15 mins. After much swearing and cursing we got back on track and managed to regain most of the people that had passed us. Everyone’s in pretty good shape … a few blisters and sore shoulders from the packs but nothing serious. Running through Ecuador is a truly beautiful experience. Villagers out on the street to cheer us on and lots of photo stops with the locals who took more photographs of us rather than the other way around. The sun has been our friend all day and the temperature was perfect for most of the day. Team spirits are high … each supporting the others throughout the day. This is what the event is all about for us – friendship, teamwork, challenges and personal achievement. Let’s not forget about Free To Run and the fundraising. The support has been amazing but we really want to hit our target of $10,000 so share the word and encourage support. A big thankyou from all who have supported so far, from all of us in the team. Tomorrow’s another day.
Kim, Charles, James and Tim
