Thule Adventure Team Win Huairasinch Adventure Race
The Thule Adventure Team have claimed victory at the Huairasinchi Adventure Race which took place in Ecuador this past weekend, crossing the finish line two hours ahead of their closest competitors . The team fended off competition from second and third place teams, Equipo Ecuador and Team Skandia Adventures respectively,
While not as well known as some of the higher profile races, the Huairasinchi AR is earning itself a reputation as one of the toughest races around. It is billed as the "highest adventure race on Earth" and competitors climbed as up to 4300 meters (14,107 feet) while out on the course. Their route took them from the Amazon Jungle to the snow-capped peaks of the Andes, at they challenged themselves on foot, mountain bike, and kayak.
A race report is available on the team's website, which can be found here. It sounds like it was quite a challenging event, with only 33 of the 51 teams who started the race actually making it to the finish. Congratulations to the winning team which consisted of Captain Martin Flinta, Per Vestling, Jacky Boisset, and Myriam Guillot. Good luck on the rest of the 2011 season.
Thanks to Fredrik Ivansson for the tip!
