 10 KM EN EQUIPO

The “10K team” is a competition that consists of a circuit of 1 km, which has intermediate hurdles to overcome (sandpits, slopes, inclines and other difficulties).

The additional difficulty is that the competition is done in couples of 2 members,1,000 x 1,000: meaning, one of the members runs 1000 meters first, passes the baton to his teammate at the end, and the second member runs the circuit and passes the baton to the first. And so on to complete 10 km; each running 5km.

This unusual event was well received among competitors, and performed in Liquidambar Park, a beautiful green space surrounded by towering trees in the city of Concordia.
