EASTER ISLAND MARATHON 2006
four successful races under its belt, the Easter Island Marathon is actively
seeking runners far outside its 63-square-mile island for its 2006 edition.
The fifth annual Easter Island Marathon, half-marathon and 10K is scheduled
for June 11, 2006. In addition, there is a Sprint Triathlon June 09 and a
Mountainbike race June 10.
"We had a strong
response from the islanders and mainland Chile in this past years," said Race
Director Rodrigo Salas. "The last four years we welcomed runners from around
the world." Around the world they will come but never in large numbers. Due to
limited air seats and hotel accommodations on the tiny island, the event must
cap its entries at 150. Sixty places have been reserved specifically for
Marathon Tours who is the exclusive tour operator in North America for the
2006 event. www.marathontours.com
