Riviera Nayarit, Mexico - The 3rd Guayabitos 5-10K Race is ready to go in Rincón de Guayabitos on Sunday, October 16, 2016.

"Our Groups and Events desk has been instructed to support them in everything they need."

The competition will take off from the town's newly remodeled Central Plaza, marking a return to its original circuit this year. The Federación Mexicana de Asociaciones de Atletismo (FMAA) endorsed the route.

The cash prizes will total 42,000 pesos divided among the three categories: the traditional 5 and 10K races and a colorful 3K fun race where everyone can participate by walking, jogging or running, an effort to encourage physical activity and family togetherness.
