February is coming up which only means one thing: the wonderful Playa Dominicalito walking/running event is just around the corner! It’s the 9th consecutive year that this event takes place, where both locals and foreigners get together in one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica for a great cause: having some great fun while helping others!
Playa Dominicalito is located on the Pacific Coast, about 44km south of Quepos. Although the car ride is a bit longer than usual (about 3-4 hours), it is well worth it! Dominicalito town is quite small however offers gorgeous beaches and surrounding lush rainforest.
Once again, Playa Dominicalito event will take place here, on Sunday February 12th at 7 a.m. Customarily, the race not only gives families a chance to have some good healthy fun, but it also helps various organizations. For example, 100% of the registration fees will go to benefit the D.A.W.G. (Domestic Animal Walfare Group) as well as the local Lifeguards.
The event will offer its usual 2K walk, 5K run and 10K race.
The Toucan 2K walk is designed for children up to 12 years of age and promotes physical activities and fun. Kids can make of it as they wish by either walking or running. Also, all the funds raised by this specific race will be given to the Dominicalito public Elementary School.
The 5K and 10K races are challenging in their own way, especially because they take place at the beach under the hot sun. However they are always full of great energy and excitement!
Registration for this wonderful event can be easily done online by filling out a form and than making the payment at the BCR bank or through PayPal. Registration fees are as follows: 2K – ¢3,000, 5K – ¢8,000 and 10K – ¢10,000.
Spend your Sunday getting some great exercise at the beach while helping others in need! Come with your whole family and enjoy the amazing Playa Dominicalito event!
