...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.
