To support the race’s eco-friendly mission, all athletes will have an opportunity to plant a tree on the Marriott resort property.

Triathlons are some of the toughest races around, challenging the endurance of participants on land and sea. The Los Sueños Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort invites trained athletes to push their bodies to the limit at Ecotriathlon Marriott Los Sueños 2011. The event, which takes place September 3-4, offers a number of different distances, from 200m all the way up to 10 km. Many of the races begin from the Los Sueños Marriott Resort.

However, this Costa Rica resort wanted to sponsor much more than just a triathlon. Not only does the Los Sueños Marriott Resort offer great Costa Rica vacations, but this hotel is also committed to preserving the environment. On September 3, before the events begin, athletes will have an opportunity to plant a tree, provided by the Los Sueños Marriott. These new trees will help ensure that future generations can enjoy the splendor of the natural environment for years to come. Additionally, the pre-race festivities will include a sea turtle release at the beach for the racers and friends.
