DAY 5: St. Marc to Wahoo Bay

We said “au revoir” to Saint-Marc and runners hit the road at 4:30AM for 20 miles to Wahoo Bay. While Day 5 is one of the lower mileage days, the rolling hills and the 103 miles thus far can make for a challenging run.

We wrapped up the run by 10AM, refueled, and traveled to Menelas to see our families. The trip to Menelas is always a highlight. Our runners meet the families they are running for and are immersed in the impact that they are making through running. Marckenley, Falada, and Verline represented our families in welcoming everyone and sharing collective words of gratitude.

The early start provided cover from the heat, allowing runners to enjoy the course while mentally preparing for Day 4.
