Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge, an extreme endurance race that entails running, biking, canoeing, spelunking and certainly not limited to these, now joins Belize’s top races. It is now the longest race in Belize with over 300 miles spanning 4 days, a record previously held by Belikin La Ruta Maya at 180 miles in 4 days and followed by the Holy Saturday Cycling Classic at 130 miles in 1 day. This new adventure tests the human ability and pushes it to its very limits. It is unbelievable what the participants are put to do. This race is to be held every 2 years and covers an area of San Ignacio Town, Mopan River, Xunantunich, Macal River, El Pilar, rural farming areas, the Mountain Pine Ridge and the Chiquibul National Park.
It’s that time of year again, where animals and men come together and join forces on the track. Yes, you guessed right, I’m talking about the New Years Horse Racing event, held on the 1st of January 2014 at the Castleton Race Track, Burrell Boom Village.
Horses, Jockeys, and audiences; all are eager to know what the outcome of the race will be.Prancing out proudly, along with their riders; they enter the track,Legs yearning to have a feel of the dusty road to victory,neck stretched out, ears up and aware of their spectators.
The next expedition race in the Chiquibul-Maya Mountains. This adventure race begins 2014 in order to raise visibility of the western maya mountains. Areas covered will be Mountain Pine Ridge, Caracol, Chiquibul, Vaca.
The Ruta Maya gets underway, its truly an adrenaline to see the paddlers take of, here are some images of today’s highlights.
