C2C campus to coast (update 9)

Through a tangled labyrinth or cryptic posts, texts messages and the occasional email - I have surmised that it was a knock down drag out paddle to the finish as Mark and Lauren tried to reel in the lead boat; I don't know much [crowd nods eagerly] but I am sure we will see a full race audit from Mark and Lauren on their blog.  The drums beat loud as they were at a 30 minute deficit and reeled them in within a couple of minutes - now that's adventure racing.

Here is a shot of the finish from the C2C website in the daylight. The camaraderie at these events is outstanding.  I hear the chest of gold bullion for the winners will be awarded at 7pm or was it a beer mug? - can't remember I'm all a dither.

Here's what it looks like under the glow of a red light (for night vision) - Ben's GPS says it all.  Congrats to those that took on the daunting challenge, experienced all that is grand about the Grand River. Hats off to the organizers and spectators that cheered them on.  Until we meet again - Watch your top notch, and keep your powder dry.
