Running for Education at Xplor Bravest Race
If you read our previous blog post, then you already know that the Bravest Race is a challenging mud-run-style 5K obstacle race at Xplor Park in the Riviera Maya. It's the kind of race where you have to run, jump, swim, climb, and crawl to get to the finish line.
This year, one of our favorite Playa del Carmen restaurants, Sundowner Yacht Club, is putting together a team of runners to participate in the Bravest Race and they'll be running to raise money for The KKIS Project, a registered Mexican nonprofit that works to keep economically disadvantaged kids in school by providing them with the tools they need to succeed.
You can help by sponsoring a runner for every kilometer they run in the 5K obstacle race. But don't wait, Xplor Bravest Race is just a few weeks away! To sponsor a runner, stop by the restaurant at Plaza Coba in Playa del Carmen. Anyone stopping in to sponsor a runner will get a beer or Sundowner cocktail on the house. And don't forget to join them at the after party!
For those of you who won’t be in town to attend but would still like to sponsor a runner, click here to follow Sundowner Yacht Club on Facebook and find out how.
