Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

Seventh Half Marathon and 10K Competitions in Riviera Nayarit

Jorge Jimenez - CVB of Riviera Nayarit
November 18, 2015

The 7th Riviera Nayarit Half Marathon and 10K is set to take place in Nuevo Vallarta on Saturday, November 21, 2015. This Destination anchor event has shown the most growth out of the many events taking place here, and since its inception it has counted on the support of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).

“The Half Marathon is in the Riviera Nayarit for life,” commented Arturo García, the event’s organizer. “We began with 186 runners and now we have 1,300. Our objective, though, is to reach 8,000, and we think it’s entirely possible because the tendency worldwide is towards half marathons — they’re more attractive because the distance is more comfortable.”

This year and moving forward the trophies are Huichol art creations made out of beads. The prizes are in kind as this is a competition for tourist runners, though elite runners are also welcome.

Both the men’s and women’s groups will compete in six categories within the 10K and seven in the 21K, ages 18 to 60+. The distances and criteria were authorized by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).

The participants come from 16 states in Mexico as well as Canada, the United States, Brazil and Holland. The starting and finish lines as well as the awards ceremony will be at the parking lot at the Centro Empresarial. Both races start at 7:00 am. It’s estimated the awards ceremony for the 10K will be at 8:30 am, while the one corresponding to the 21K will take place at 10:30 am.

Citizens are asked to take into account that there will be partial or total closures of the main avenues in Nuevo Vallarta for approximately two hours, so they need to take the appropriate precautions. This year there will be a more ample coverage of medical services thanks to the support of the State Government, the Banderas Bay City Hall and, for the first time, the Red Cross.
