Over 350 runners, 500 spectators, and 50 volunteers came together to participate in Ruta La Paz II, a 5km&10km run followed by an afternoon of live music by Costa Rican Reggae Band Ojo de Buey on the beach in Tamarindo on Saturday, November 19th, 2011. La Paz’s commitment to creating a professionally run community event that brings together people from all of the surrounding communities in the name of healthy sport was clearly achieved. All profits from the event are being dedicated to the La Paz Community School scholarship fund which is committing $100,000 this year alone to the education of 23 highly motivated local La Paz students. Following the overwhelming success of Ruta La Paz II, the school community is already planning for Ruta La Paz III on November 10th, 2012. Thanks to all of the event sponsors for supporting such an important community event. Click here to check out the Ruta La Paz video of the event.
