The Riviera Nayarit Half Marathon was a success




  • Over 700 runners from all over Mexico attended this race
  • Carlos Alfredo Echeverría and Dinora Peña, the winners for the 21k race
The Riviera Nayarit Touristic Half Marathon held last Saturday November 17th is golden, not only for the beauty of the route that has been modified to maintain beauty and certifications by the Mexican Athletics Federation and by the International Association of Athletics Federations. An golden is the crown Carlos Alfredo Echeverría and Dinora Peña , winners of the 21k race.

With near 700 runners registered for the competition –as much as 200 more than last year participants— and the visit of International multimedalist Dionicio Ceron, who trained a group of competitive athletes from Guadalajara, the Fourth Edition of this marathon had a bright organization.

“Is such a beautiful route, such a gorgeous place that I almost can´t believe I’m still in Mexico. This place is a privilege for all contestants”, said Dionicio Ceron, who’s got back for the second time for the competition.

“High endurance sports are a key niche to attract tourism in Riviera Nayarit, as they deal with people who are strongly focused on achieving goals, and who also have purchasing power and a well developed environmental culture, which provides the ideal conditions to promote our destination and to generate economic benefits for everyone”, said the General Director of the Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit, Marc Murphy.

The CVB of Riviera Nayarit is a public non-profit association dedicated to promoting tourism on the coast of Nayarit, from its southern border with Jalisco in Nuevo Vallarta to Novillero, next to bordering Sinaloa on the North, by integrating the promotion of historic and cultural sites.
