SPORT - ADVENTURE- SOLIDARITY
From December 13 to 20, 2019, La Saharienne will enter the heart of Osa in the South Pacific. For the first time in Costa Rica, the 100% feminine and supportive multisport event will take place.
In a sporting and human adventure outside the common, Las Sahariennes will excel for a week in multisport disciplines: trail, mountain bike, canoe, and swimming. The 70 female teams of two members each, will also tackle tests such as archery or ax throwing.
The venue of the event will be the centennial Nieborowsky School in the small town of Cortes, where accommodation for the athletes is being prepared. They hope to create links with the locals, get to know the culture, and fully share the adventure between the Pacific Ocean and the Costa Rican jungle.
La Saharienne is a sporting event with a philanthropic vocation. The French association, the organizer of the race, is dedicated to the fight against violence. The athletes will donate the prizes resulting from the competition to related associations.
The organizer, Bruno Pomart, has worked hard, inspecting the routes for the competitions with departures from Cortes, Sierpe, Rincón, and Playa Ballena. Bruno works with disadvantaged young people throughout the year, contributing his experience and supporting solidarity actions through La Saharienne.
The campaign of Osa Free of Single-Use Plastic joins the competition. It is part of the “Tourism Development Triangle” initiative that aims to activate the economy in the towns of Puerto Cortés, Palmar and Sierpe.
The outstanding athlete Vianka González, a native of Osa, will be their dedicated. She is the best athlete in the history of the winning Canton in the National Games with 10 Gold medals and five times Central American Champion in High Jump events.
The neighbors of Osa are welcoming the athletes arriving with family and friends from all over the world!
