Paddlers and fans of the annual La Ruta Maya River Challenge are gearing up for the weekend. The start of the race begins under the historic Hawksworth Bridge in San Ignacio Town, Cayo District. As has become the tradition, the Town Council makes preparations along the Macal River to accommodate the event which promotes clean water ways. We caught up with the Mayor of the Twin Towns, Earl Trapp, and spoke with him about the cleaning and dredging that has begun.
According to the Mayor, they start preparations for the event one month prior.
