10k Run Event 2018
The Ruta de las Iglesias 10k is a nonprofit race, which was recognized as the best nocturnal race in all of Ecuador as well as one of the most beautiful nocturnal races in the world.
It is an extraodinary experience; it takes place at one of the most beautiful colonial districts of all of South America allowing our locals and foreign visitors admire with new eyes the central part of our capital city.
The race has a numerous group of volunteers and a chip timing system that allows precision in measurements. All athletes that reach the finish line will be given a medal and a thermal blanket; as well as participating in the raffle of fabulous prices for the winners of each category.
On August 25, 2018, the XIV edition of the “Ruta the las Iglesias” will take place with 15000 competitors.
A portion of the inscription costs will be donated to the Special Olympics Foundation, funds that will be destined to the Olympic Cycle Project; which promotes the participation of children and young people with special capabilities in 9 different sport disciplines at a national and international level.
