Open Invitation To The 5th Flamingos 3-7K Race In The Riviera Nayarit

flamingosfrontttThe 5th Flamingos 3-7K Race by Grupo Diestra is ready to go next September 30,2017, in order to promote healthy living with those who work with the hotel sector as well as help broadcast a positive message about sports within the community.

The Groups and Events desk of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) extend the invitation. It’s open for those who work with the hotel as well as the general public and boasts the slogan “Running For Our Health.”

This time the event will extend help to those in need, as they are asking participants to register for free with a donation of a non-perishable food item that will be sent to the region’s most needy, according to Aldo Hernández Ojeda, Human Resources Manager for Grupo Diestra.

According to Hernández, the race came about as a cultural activity for the wellbeing of those who work for the company, but thanks to the success it’s had since its first year they decided to make it an open invitation.

Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, indicated this event is a great opportunity for people to come run in the destination as it promotes sports tourism as well as trying to encourage healthy habits with the hotel workers. “It also helps unite families and will be a fantastic experience for all involved.”
