Belize- RUTA MAYA cross country canoe race approaching fast.
THE ANNUAL RUTA MAYA CROSS COUNTRY CANOE RACE IS COMING FAST AND DUE IN MARCH.
Already participants have been practicing with the early in the season, short race from Boom to the port of Belize City.
The BEEG race starts in Santa Elena Town in Western Belize in early March. The race is a stage race of around 200 miles and take four days and 3 nights, with participants, spectators and family camping out along the banks of the meandering Belize River that flows to the coast. There are many shallow places in this river and some deep water parts.
Contestants mostly come from Belize. There are the OLD FARTS, the women entries, and the British Army enter one or two canoes and usually get beat. They stand ready to compete against the US Marines though, or the US Navy Seals if they should dare to show up. There are some entries from different countries of the world.
