Hi there. My name is Merritt Hopper and I am the Race Director for a new adventure race in Guatemala, http://www.race2adventure.com/. This is a weeklong adventure that entails 5K-10K trail runs/walks in the morning followed by fun and non-competitive days filled with rafting the Cahabon river, boating on the fresh water lake of Atitlan, relaxing on the black sand beaches outside of Puerto San Jose, and ziplining outside of the vibrant city of Antigua! We’ve been putting on weeks like this in Fiji, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and most recently, Ecuador (100 participants!). Now we’re taking this adventure week to Guatemala in March 2012! The idea is to have a small form of trail racing in the morning so everyone can feel fulfilled and get exercise. Then, after the competitive race, by 9am, you’re ready for eco tourism at its finest. For more detailed information on the eight night itinerary, please click here - http://www.race2adventure.com/Guatemala/Itinerary.html.
Although we have ads in Trail Runner magazine for the next 3 months, a Facebook page, and other forms of marketing, the best way for us to reach interested runners, walkers, and adventure travelers is through road running clubs like the Conway Running Club.
If you could please pass along information on our adventure week, scheduled for March 24th through April 1, 2012, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could put this on a race calendar (providing your club has one), that would be great too. If you or anyone you know has any questions about this, we can be reached at email@example.com.
Registration rates will increase over time so the sooner you’re able to forward along information on this week, the better. At the present time, 8 nights lodging, airport transport, almost every meal, every race, and every adventure costs $1600. As of October 31st, that fee will go to $1700. For more information on registration rates, please visit http://www.race2adventure.com/Registration.html. In the event 3 or more registrants from your trail running group register before October 31st, an early bird group rate of $1450 will be honored!
Thanks so much for your time!
