Dominicalito run/walk benefits life guard corps

The Third Annual Playa Dominicalito 10K Race /5K run/walk and the Toucan 2K for kids 12 and under is March 20.

“We created this community event to benefit one of the very few lifeguard programs in Costa Rica here in Dominical and also the elementary school in Dominicalito, plus we wanted to be able to provide an active health-focused event for the community,” said Dave West, a local businessman, who with his wife, Deb, are promoting the event.

The event starts at 7 a.m. with entry fees ranging from 3,000 to 7,000 colons depending on the distance a participant plans to travel. Registrations are being accepted in Quepos, Uvita and San Isidro as well as Dominical and Dominicalito. A number of local merchants are supporting the event.

Dominical is one of the few beach communities with a highly trained and professional life guard corps. However, the community has had to pinch colons to keep the staff. They have saved many lives. More information is availableHERE!
