Las Terrenas 10k and 5k Road Race

Las Terrenas 10k and 5k Road Race

Las Terrenas 10k… already in its fifth consecutive year

Sunday, March 9, 2014

The V Edition of Las Terrenas 5K – 10K will be held on Sunday, March 9, 2014, starting at 8:00 AM from Punta Popy onto Las Terrenas-El Limón road, on the circuit certified by the International Associations of Marathons and Distance Races, AIMS, with the backing of the Dominican Federation of Athletics Associations, and the main sponsorship of Cap El Limón Samaná.

In last year’s IV Edition of Las Terrenas 5K-10K, 350 runners participated in the event and over 200 little ones took part in the children races. This meant an exponential growth with respect to the first edition in 2010, and now in 2014, we expect to have an even greater participation thanks to the invaluable collaboration of the Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Sports, the Dominican Federation of Athletics Associations (FDDA) and local and national companies headed by Cap El Limón Samaná, Real Estate Las Terrenas, Mercasid and the French School Théodore Chassériau.

This year we want to reach a higher number of participants to continue with our aim to position El Limón and Las Terrenas as a preferred sport-tourism destination, but what really motivates us is to be able to provide the youth and children of El Limón and Las Terrenas, and the country in general, the opportunity and the joy of participating in this type of event, says Mrs. Alma Arellano, Project Manager of Las Terrenas 10k and Sports Solutions DR, the group responsible for organizing the race.

In Las Terrenas, runners can register at the office of Las Terrenas Language School, in Santo Domingo at the offices of the Dominican Federation of Athletics Associations, at the Runner’s Shop, and at the offices of Santo Domingo Corre, in Santiago through our Web site.
