Great news for Casa de Campo runners and philanthropists! The Hogar del Niño has just announced that it is planning it’s first “fun run” event – the “Casa de Campo Corre”, scheduled to take place on Saturday the 6th of December.
Your opportunity to get out and about, get fit and support a good cause, the Casa de Campo Corre has options for all ages and abilities. There will be a 5km, 10km and a 21km race, so for those of you looking for a real challenge, this is your chance to run your first half marathon (21km).
The route has not yet been announced, but will take Casa de Campo runners through the Casa de Campo resort, and of course all funds raised are destined to the Hogar del Niño charity, the Dominican Republic’s most complete education and daycare centre that looks after more than 1500 children on a daily basis.
Save the date… and start training!
