Minichallenge! Ecomarathon Riviera Maya

By 5 years ago
Categories Yucatan

To continue with last week’s report-
Those doing the 10km, accidentally ran between 18-21km due to poor signage along the road. However, they all managed to finish it in around 1hour and a half! There were many achey people for the next few days! There were around 1000 participants from Playa del Carmen and different cities of Mexico, we even found some professional runners from Kenya and US! We found a batman running and a couple of turtles running to celebrate the end of the season too!!  Well done to all the GVI team! We are itching to do another marathon!! 

We would also like to say a big thank you to all those who contributed to the just giving account. For those who haven´t already and still wanted to, the good news is you can still give at www.justgiving.com/gvimexicoecomarathon
Due to running or working over the weekend we had a displaced weekend on Monday-Tuesday so we have had a rather short week. For those who stayed on base, we were able to dive on Tuesday and enjoy watching the local wildlife.

So we find ourselves at another weekend, next week is back to normal, but for now -adios amigos!
