The Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort is proud to host the athletes competing in four special eco-friendly races in September and October.
Racing along the scenic coastal beaches and through the crystal clear waters, triathletes will be put to the test while enjoying the beauty of Costa Rica. The four events offer different difficulties for athletes of all skill levels. The majority of these races start at the beautiful Marriott Hotel in Costa Rica.
The four events include:
Both the triathlon and the swim competition were huge successes and saw 510 triathletes and 314 swimmers. The Los Suenos Marriott anticipates equal success for the upcoming EcoRun and Mountain Bike competitions.
The Los Sueños Marriott Resort is strongly committed to preserving the environment. As the host and main sponsor for the event, the resort will offer one tree to each athlete to personally plant before the race on September 9. These new trees will help ensure that future generations can enjoy the splendor of the natural environment for years to come.
“We are proud to be the official host for this eco-friendly triathlon”, said Diana de Rojas, General Manager of the Los Sueños Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort. “Not only will these green efforts go a long way in preserving the natural environment, but these initiatives will continue to attract more visitors to Costa Rica.”
