- The cash awards will total 42 thousand pesos and will be split among the three categories: the traditional 5 and 10 kilometers, and a colorful fun 3-kilometer race.
The 3rd Guayabitos 5-10K Race is ready to go in Rincón de Guayabitos on Sunday, October 16, 2016.
“The events at Guayabitos have grown under the administration of Dr. Alejandro Chávez and we’re very pleased because it adds to the list of alternatives for tourists in the Riviera Nayarit,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Our Groups and Events desk has been instructed to support them in everything they need.”
The competition will take off from the town’s newly remodeled Central Plaza, marking a return to its original circuit this year. The Federación Mexicana de Asociaciones de Atletismo (FMAA) endorsed the route.
The cash prizes will total 42 thousand pesos divided among the three categories: the two traditional 5 and 10K races and a colorful 3K fun race where everyone can participate by walking, jogging or running, an effort to encourage physical activity and family togetherness.
There will be commemorative t-shirts and medals for all runners who cross the finish line and specialty trophies for the first three places in each category for both men and women. There will also be economic incentives for the winners.
