RacingThePlanet: Ecuador 2015 Blogs

The End
02-Aug-2015 12:26:54 PM [(GMT+12:00) Auckland, Wellington]

250kms later and it's the end! Apologies for missing yesterday's blog but we had technical issues. Here we are now in Quito 7days after starting and we're all in one piece. Naturally there's a few issues but nothing serious and nothing that won't repair. Team NZ have scorched it (which means we reached the finish line!). The Big March was a big day out in the field and we got into camp 5 at around 11pm battered and bruised but across the line nonetheless. The team worked like a machine ... There hasn't been a harsh word spoken and we've been perfectly synchronised. For some it may be hard to imagine how 5 independent thinking men can work as such a tight team but it worked for us. We were tighter than an All Black scrum! This morning was just a casual 11km to the finish line and once again we crossed the line shoulder to shoulder and to great applause from the crowd (that means everyone else who finished before us today which was most of the field!) 5 hour bus ride back to Quito - stinking, feeling the pain but proud to have finished what was a massive adventure. Tonight is the awards evening then we part ways tomorrow morning - Charlie, Kim and me to Beverley Hills for some r&r, James back to the UK and Hamish staying in Quito until Monday then home to NZ. Thanks to all for following our trip, we hope you've all had as much fun as we had. Team NZ are Free To Run - we ran this race for our own pride satisfaction and enjoyment but we also ran it for all those women around he world who aren't free to run - may the world change for the better and may all of humanity share equal rights to running and sports in general. Tim, Charlie, Kim, James and Hamish.
