Every year on the beautiful Costa Rica some activities sports are organized, among them is the race to Tamarindo. The ability to exercise, and to run all over the most visited coastal areas of Costa Rica, caused this Marathon people getting so exited. The marathon will be held on Saturday September 22 off the coast of Guanacaste.

According to Victor Lopez, president of Tamarindo Beach Marathon, the organization that organizes the race, the interest it shows in the fact that in 2007, when the first edition took place, there were 200 participants, now is over 3500 participants.

In San Jose, these days the humidity is 77%, and is expected to Tamarindo is 85% for the day of the race, while the temperature would be 23 �C approximately. "We chose the long distances by temperature, we expect that as at 7:30 a. m., when the first end of the marathon, the temperature could be 22 degrees, but then reaches a maximum of 29 at about 10:30. m. "said Lopez.

Hydration: This issue is so important that Lopez should undergo a "hydration program" the day before the race and arrive at least noon on Friday to acclimate the body to the place. To ensure that athletes with higher mileage have no problems with thirst, Global Sport ATV use four to bring water, Gatorade, serum and energy gels, which serve as "fuel" in the tests.
