It’s that time again! In less than two weeks, some 500 athletes, mostly from the Yucatan Peninsula and large Mexican cities like Guadalajara, Monterrey and Mexico City, will swim, run and bike in the Mexican Caribbean and lush 326 acre Tres Rios Nature Park, which is home to 3 natural rivers, 10 cenotes (natural freshwater sinkholes), more than 120 species of plants and more than 90 species of animals.

There was a training session at Hacienda Tres Rios on Sunday for those who wanted to experience the route before the event.
