The first annual Costa Maya Triathlon was held on Sunday, August 8, and by the turnout of participants and spectators it surely seems that it won’t be the last. Six teams and ten individual participants lined up on the beach front at the race’s start by Wayo’s beach where swimmers completed a quarter mile course.
Coming back to the beach, the swimmers tagged their partners who then commenced the second leg of the race which was a bike ride to Victoria House and back to the beach. The third leg of the race was a sprint to the Belize Yacht Club and back to town where the finish line awaited the racers at the Costa Maya Festival grounds.
Winning the triathlon was the Coast Guard team comprised of Jamaila Requeña, Joel Borland and Marco Castellanos with a time of 35mins 3sec and coming in first in the individual race was Eric Donis with a time of 38mins.
