La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge

7 February 2011 One Comment
 

La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge is a grueling multi-day canoe race traveling a perilous river route across the country of Belize. The route runs west to east along the Macal and Belize Rivers, the only link between beautiful San Ignacio, in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, and the bustling port of Belize City.

The race is divided into 8 divisions:

  • Male
  • Female
  • Mixed
  • Masters
  • Dory
  • Intramural
  • Pleasure craft
  • Family Adventure Race

And is held every year in March coinciding with Baron Bliss Day. This year (2011), the canoes will leave San Ignacio on March 4 and arrive in Belize City on March 7. The teams, which race for station prizes along the way, battle for the major cash prizes awarded at the end of the race.

If you are interested in obtaining more information about the race, or would like to field a team in this year’s race, contact inquiries@bighjuices.com or send a fax to 501-824-2646 (Belize).
