Trent trucks on

22 Apr 2024

Trent continues his trek north and has covered around 212km (131 miles) in recent days, since leaving the Sierra de Hornachuelos Natural Park area.

He is now in central Iberia, between the small towns of La Higuera and Lanzahita in the Castile and León province.

Torc takes the high road

22 Apr 2024

Since our last update, just before the weekend, Cuch Torc has moved approximately 246km (152 miles) north.

Trent joins the pack in Spain

18 Apr 2024

As we’d hoped, Trent continued heading northwards through Morocco and he took a relatively short overnight route across the water from Tangier to Spain, arriving just to the west of Tarifa.

Wasting little time, he headed onward and is currently in the foothills to the north of the Sierra Morena range in the Córdoba Province. He has covered approximately 330km (205 miles) since we posted yesterday.

Torc tours north

18 Apr 2024

After a few days spent in the Casablanca region, Torc swiftly covered 595km, (370 miles) flying into Spain just west of the Straits of Gibraltar.

He is now in the same area as Cuckoos Trent and KP, in the mountains to the north-west of the Andalusian city of Córdoba.

Trent heads to the Med

17 Apr 2024

Trent is continuing his journey through Morocco and having left the area near Rabat, he has moved north-east approximately 190km (118 miles) toward Tangier.

He is just over 40km (24 miles) away from the Straits of Gibraltar so all being well will make his next stop in southern Spain shortly.  

Really Sayaan something...

17 Apr 2024

In the past couple of days, Sayaan has flown north, leaving the Atlas Mountains, flying 340km (211 miles) to the Moroccan coast close to the small town of Bnir Bouzra.  

From here he has continued another 350km (217 miles) across the Mediterranean, passing by the Spanish coastal resort of Malaga, and onwards up to Parque Natural Sierra de Andújar, a region renowned as a stronghold for Iberian Lynx.

KP hits the Spanish sierra

17 Apr 2024

KP motored north, cutting across the Atlantic west of the Straits of Gibraltar, covering some 872km (541 miles).

He passed over Seville, crossing the River Guadalquivir near Alolea del Rió, and is currently resting up in the Unesco-listed Parque Natural Sierra de Hornachuelos, just to the north-west of Córdoba.  

Joe heads into Spain

17 Apr 2024

Joe has moved north-east through Portugal, crossing the border into Spain close to the city of Badajoz. He's continued northwards to an area just 4km (2.5 miles) to the west of Cáceres, in Extramadura, covering around 355km (220 miles) since his arrival in Europe just two days ago.

Cores cracks on

17 Apr 2024

Cuach Cores remains south of the Sahara, but has finally moved west from his last location just north of Lagos, Nigeria. In just two days he covered some 390km (242 miles).

Passing through Benin and Togo, he is now in south-east Ghana, by the Volta River, just to the north of the Kwahu Mountains.

Trent makes capital gain

15 Apr 2024

Trent crossed Western Sahara and headed 615km (382 miles) to Sous-Massa National Park just south of Agadir, on the Moroccan coast.

After a short rest and refuel he then carried on, covering a further 450km (279 miles) and is now in a lush agricultural region south of the Moroccan capital, Rabat.
