Len Forkas arrived in Annapolis, MD this afternoon and successfully completed his second Race Across America! He placed 3rd in his division and 13th overall, completing the race in 11 days 21 hours and 35 minutes. Congratulations to Len and his amazing support crew!
Len rides into the finish line one rotation of the wheels at a time, as he has for 3143.9 miles over the last 12 days. It's been an amazing journey! We are grateful for our TS55 sponsor Elm Street Development, and for the incredible outpouring of support of all of our sponsors and donors along the way. Len dedicates the finish to 7 year-old Thomas from Fort Meade.
RAAM organizers describe the two climbs at the start of the route from Rouzerville to Hanover as "the last serious sustained ones of the race." Thank you to Mooring Financial for their support of the Race for Hope. Len dedicates his efforts here to the memory of 6 year-old Olivia from Richmond, Virginia who bravely battled over the last year.
Hopecam's mission would not be possible without the support of sponsors and donors. We are very grateful for the tremendous generosity of so many through Len's Race for Hope! Len enters the 12th state of the race, Pennsylvania. Len will cycle close to 100 miles in this state, before crossing back into Maryland for the finish. Thank you to our Pennsylvania sponsor, Crown Castle.
