To commemorate its 10th Anniversary, Grupo Xcaret’s Xplor Park preps for its 7th annual exhilarating obstacle course
RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO- JUNE 10, 2019 – Grupo Xcaret’s Xplor park is excited to announce that it will host one of Mexico’s most challenging races, Xplor Bravest Race Evolution, for the 7th consecutive year. On September 22nd, over 3,500 people are expected to participate, as part of the ongoing celebrations of the adventure park’s 10th anniversary.
The unique race represents a challenge for all participants, as well as a distinguished way to explore 300 million years of our planet’s geological evolution. This year’s new route will cover four miles throughout the renowned park, and will feature more than 40 obstacles, including a never-before-seen circuit. Race participants will run, swim, jump, roll, and crawl through a multitude of obstacles in four different stages, each symbolizing earth’s different eras, including Pangea, Dinosaurs, Xapiens and Xplor.
Athletes will have to choose between two paths along the challenging circuit, running through the middle of the Quintana Roo jungle and encountering obstacles at each stage to earn one of four Evolution Gems upon completion. Competitors who collect all four gems become a Bravest X, with the bonus of earning the Xplor 10-year anniversary commemorative pin that celebrates this notable eco-park and its commitment to sustainability.
“Once again, we’re very excited to host the Xplor Bravest Race Evolution for a seventh year,” said Armando Ruiz Villalobos, the park’s director of operations. “Runners and adventure seekers not only in Mexico, but around the world, recognize this one of a kind obstacle course as an opportunity to take on a challenge both physically and mentally, and we’re really proud of that.”
Registration for the Xplor Bravest Race Evolution is now open, for VIP and regular entry, and 30% discounts are available through June. Since opening its doors 10 years ago, Xplor park has gained international recognition for its six main adventure programs including ziplines, amphibian vehicles, rafts, stalactite river swimming, hammock splashing and spelunking.
