Running in Playa del Carmen is fun for everyone! Of course, even for our furry friends! On Sunday February 9 Playa del Carmen residents came out to enjoy a fun and fairly non competitive road race with their friends, family and their dogs.
Playa del Carmen’s 1st annual Peek-rroton was a huge success and a quite enjoyable one. Some of our team members were at the race with their own dogs along with our favorite Top Dog “Topper”.
There were dogs of all kinds! From large Great Danes to mini Chihuahuas; some even dressed up for the occasion!
The race was a 3 kilometer race. Some walked with their dogs while others ran! But no matter how you got to the finish line or at what speed; one things is for sure, that everyone was having a great time!
A free and fun race for everyone!
Registration for the event was absolutely free, which was a big benefit for the entire community of Playa del Carmen. Normal road races would range anywhere from 200 to 300 pesos for registration.
This unique running event in Playa del Carmen was an awesome event for adults, children, retirees, and of course the dogs!
Bringing the Community of Playa del Carmen together!
The first ever race was held at CTM with 10th avenue which is essentially becoming the “new Playa”. It made me happy to see the diverse community of Playa residents come together to take part in this Sunday morning event.
Next Peek-rrton in Playa del Carmen!
We are excited to hear that there will be another Peek-rroton coming soon which will take route through some of the beautiful jungle area of Playa. I hope that this race, as well as other events like this one, will spread throughout the different neighborhoods in town highlighting that Playa del Carmen is not just about the beach and 5th avenue! It is a safe and lively town all the way through!
Playa del Carmen is a Pet Friendly Town!
It’s not doubt that Playa del Carmen is dog friendly and continues to show their love for animals. Animal rescue is a huge initiative in Playa del Carmen. If you are thinking about adopting a dog find out how you can rescue and save a life at Playa Animal Rescue (PAR).
