The Best Races in the Riviera Maya

Things to do

Looking to run in Riviera Maya this year? If it seems like everywhere you look someone is running a half-marathon or obstacle race. Cancun and Riviera Maya have sport activities and races almost every weekend. A half-Marathon may sound plenty intimidating to many, it’s a much more feasible goal to wrap your head around than a full marathon. Not to mention, it is still a pretty impressive accomplishment to check in your bucket list. With the proper training, anyone really can run.

Running Dead Race

Johanna 1

You must have the guts of your life to survive a 5k obstacle race of course with zombies! All the participants are being chased by zombies, you must escape from them and get to the finish line with at least 1 of the 3 lives you have.

If you are a runner you must escape from the zombies, if you run fast they will not catch you, they will eat the slowest. When you are in the middle passing all the obstacles, the challenge is to not be hunted by them.You must stay alert.
