As every year, the sports activities of the Dueños weekend began very early in the morning on Saturday, October 29th, with the traditional Casathon; a 5km marathon around the resort, which tested the physical condition of the Casa de Campo villa owners.
Scheduled to start at 8am, runners started the marathon on Minitas Beach, more than 20 runners sprinted off from the starting line, and the fastest were back at the finish line approximately 15 minutes later! Now that’s a fast stride. The route passed through Los Lagos, then Caralva taking the parallel route of the main road to go through the Practice Range next to the Casa de Campo hotel and back to the starting point at Minitas beach.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the race this year! This is certainly one of the events that most Dueños look forward to since they can test their endurance and see if they were able to improve on their previous year’s numbers – especially Arturo Quezada, who continues to improve his time with each passing year!
That same day Casa de Campo’s villa owners were able to participate in numerous other activities and events, such as a golf, tennis, and shooting tournaments which we will bring you coverage of in the coming days.
