Breaking News - Race Report Stage 4 Sao Tomé

The long stage started with heavy rain for the runners - first time in the history of GlobalLimits São Tomé - The Hemisphere Crossing. For some, the rain came as a blessing as it swipe the dense warm air away. The long stage is 58,9km long, approximately along the southern coastline of the island. Our runners will experience São Tomé’s deep jungles (extra slippery), plantations, river crossing and local villages. Tonight‘s camp is in the legendary Praia Grande - The bug beach. Special mention is Maaike Ortibus from Belgium who has done very well in the last two days and is now rank number 3 at the female league. Alison Graham from the USA really loved the diversity of today’s course.
