Planet Adventure 24 is underway

...And they are off! The Crew Queen for this race will be Yi Shun and I'll be blogging on her behalf due to the lack of internet access. Team ARFE-Smartwool is off and running. They race started at 8 am from Tell City, Indiana with an orienteering section. The team predicts this leg should take about 1.5 hours which will bring them back to the TA at approx 9:30am (central). Keep in mind as you are tracking that they are in the central time zone so they are an hour behind EST. The O section is followed by a bike, paddle, trek, ropes combo which we will get more details on after they come in from this first section. Starting off with an orienteering section sounds like a good way to set themselves apart from the field given that it's one of thier strengths. Looks like its going to be a bit of a soggy race given the current conditions and forecast of rain with temps in the mid-30's to mid-40's. More to follow shortly after the next TA...stay tuned.
