Kitesurf

For the fourth consecutive year, on January 8, the DWS Leave, defined by the organization as “the largest event in the country as far as kitesurfing is concerned, in which the main attraction is a 12-kilometer regatta that begins in Costa Smeralda and ends at the Main Stage located in the Kota Beach resort, at the beginning of the city’s northern border ”.

Fermín Besteiro, surfer and promoter of the initiative, highlights that the DWS Kite’s vision is to “generate a unique visual spectacle, coloring the sky with 85 kite sails”. In addition, “it is sustainable and environmentally responsible, declared of municipal interest and does not discriminate gender, age or level.”

The regatta starts at 2:00 p.m. and, taking advantage of the force of the wind and the waves in favor of the trajectory, the participants will sail along the entire coastal belt of Pinar del Río to the starting line of the spas.

Running

On the first weekend of the year, fans of pedestrian tests will be able to participate in the traditional Desert marathon, which was carried out uninterruptedly from 2001 until last summer, when the health situation prevented it.

In its 21st edition, the race takes place in the dunes of Pinamar Norte. There are two distances: 10K competitive and 5K participatory. It will run in format non stop, which implies autonomy for each corridor between the checkpoints. The start is scheduled for 8 on Sunday 2 in Poseidon and the sea. The places to participate are limited and the registration time is until December 31st. Those interested may do so at a stand located at Av. Bunge and De las Toninas.

In dialogue with Infobae, Pablo Sosa, organizer of the Desert Marathon, offered some advice for those who wish to run a pedestrian test in the sand for the first time: “I recommend that you run with the shoes that you train every day and that the foot does not slip, that they do not force when running and that they increase the cadence (increase the number of steps). This logically will make it take longer: the one-hour runner on the street, the desert marathon completes it in an hour and a half ”. He also pointed out that the terrain makes recovery difficult, “but the second time it comes out much better.”
