Running for Education, Fourth Royal Resorts Foundation Race

A field of 748 runners and walkers of all ages took part in the Fourth Royal Resorts Foundation Race on Sunday, February 17, 2019 in Cancun Hotel Zone. The race cause: to raise money for education and provide scholarships for students to enable them to go to university.

The morning dawned fine with a breeze from the southeast, which strengthened even further by the time the race started. It didn’t seem to deter the competitors though and they were soon on their way towards El Mirador.

The field of competitors included Royal Resorts employees, 40 Royal Resorts members and guests and local runners who joined in to support the cause. They ran 3, 5 or 10 kilometers, did the 3-kilometer walk and the Fun Run for children.

The community spirit and family atmosphere was fantastic and everyone enjoyed the event, including the pre-race warm up led by members of the Social Activities team.
