Final Report Sao Tomé 2023
Heavy rain, slippery jungle trails, high humidity, and camaraderie from new found friendship define the 4th GlobalLimits São Tomé - The Hemisphere Crossing - a 6-days, 200km challenge from north to south and across the island of São Tomé.
Our runners completed the race by reaching the finish line on the island of Rolas. In the last 5km of their 200km saga, they crossed the Equator line 4 times!! We are proud of all participants in The Hemisphere Crossing!
