Cross Country @ Playa Morón 2013

On Sunday, June 30, 2013, at 8:30 AM, the first 10K road race in the El Limón, Samaná area, the Cross Country @ Playa Morón, 2013 will take place starting and finishing at the beautiful Morón Beach, Samaná. This event is sponsored by Cap El Limon Samana, endorsed by the Dominican Federation of Athletic Associations, FEDOMATLE, organized by Las Terrenas Marathon / Sports Solutions DR, and it is the first international athletic event in the El Limón-Playa Morón area recognized by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races, AIMS.

Our aim is to promote athletic events in the region of Playa Morón, Agua Sabrosa and El Limón, and at the same time guide the youth of the area toward healthy practices through sports. It is for this reason that we are sponsoring the T3 El Limón Triathlon Team which we are supporting with equipment, training and the opportunity of becoming a leading athletic team in the Dominican Republic comments Mr. Josef Katzgraber, Vice President and General Manager of the exclusive residential project Cap El Limon Samana, main sponsor of this event.

The 10K—as well as the non-competitive 5k component of the event, which can be either run or walked—will start and finish at Playa Morón and will cross the beautiful sceneries contemplating the lush and very green areas of these spectacular hills, through natural paths and exuberant vegetation, ending up in the crystal-blue waters of El Morón Beach.

Las Terrenas 10k was the first road race in Samaná certified by the Association of International Marathons and Long Distance Races, AIMS and now Cross Country @ Playa Morón, 2013 becomes the second event included in the AIMS calendar as well, this last event thanks to the sponsorship of Cap El Limon Samana through its T3 El Limon Triathlon Team. This initiates the drive to continuing organizing events of this sort for the benefit of promoting wholesome behavior in our general population and especially in our youth, says Alma Arellano, General Director of Sports Solutions DR / Las Terrenas Marathon.

This effort to support our young interested in athletic events includes a new training program for our area’s athletes, also under the sponsorship of Cap El Limon Samana. For this purpose, FEDOMATLE´s Secretary General, Professor Mariano Cedeño and Ramón Merego, Long Distance Races Director, both athletics trainers, will start a series of training sessions in Las Terrenas and El Limon which will include topics such as preparation plans and types of training, objectives and long term techniques of long distance running, warming and post-race exercises, how to prevent injuries, and aspects of nutrition and hydration. These training sessions are free and will go continue once a month with the support of Sports Solutions DR / Las Terrenas Marathon.
