Belize Bank Wins Ruta Maya Challenge

Ninety-four teams started off for this year’s run in the Ruta Maya River Challenge from Hawkesworth Bridge in San Ignacio all the way down to Belize City’s Belcan Bridge, but on the last leg, which begins at Burrell Boom it was down to 87 canoes.
For the four days from March 6 to 9, Belize’s best paddlers participated in the Ruta Maya River Challenge. Burrell Boom’s Chris Guydis won last year, breaking what had been an impressive streak by the Belize Bank team from Cayo. This year the men from up in the hills, the Lopez brothers, Armin and Danny along with their cousin Amado Cruz were out for revenge and a return to dominance. And on Monday, March 9, 2009, the Belize Bank team crossed the finish line in first place once again.
