November 13th is the official start date for the 2nd Half Marathon Riviera Nayarit, the only marathon in the region endorsed by the Federacion Mexicana de Atletismo (Mexican Athletic Federation), the International Association of Athletic Federations and the International Association of Marathons and Long-Distance Races.
This year, in addition to the 22 kilometers of the Half Marathon, a simultaneous 10 kilometer race will take place; both will cover beautiful natural scenery, golf courses, a marina, ocean views and 10 kilometers of sailable canals. A festive environment that combines celebration and sports awaits the runners.
The race is registered in the bulletin put out by the Federacion Mexicana and on their website. This year they expect to receive 800 participants, exceeding the amount from last year!
Supporting events such as these not only attracts a high number of tourists with low environmental impact but also serves to promote the destination through activities that both national and international athletes attend.
