Reto de Las Cruces
Today, January 8th, was the fourth edition of the Reto de Las Cruces.
Agua Volcano, located very closed to the City of Antigua Guatemala, has monuments in form of crosses along the path to the summit, and there is where Reto de Las Cruces derives its name.
This race has 3 categories: 10, 11 and 21 kilometers of running up to the summit of the volcano. The 21 kilometers race starts on the City of Antigua up to the town of Santa Maria de Jesús and continuing to the summit of the volcano.
The bests of the 400 runners can do the longest category in about 3 hours.
