On Saturday 7th September Yaiza hosted the third K10 Yaiza Xtreme race. The race was organised by the Yaiza Voluntary Civil Protection and Fire Association along with the Yaiza Ayuntamiento.
Our Sands Beach Active team participated in the event with everyone completing the tough course and with our very own Naomi coming second in women’s category. This was Naomi’s second Xtreme race and she was keen to defend her previous year’s position.
This year Naomi finished with a time of 58 ‘: 50 “843 seconds, behind Karina Ottosen (56’: 30”) and ahead of third-placed Raquel Rodriquez Suarez, with 58 ‘: 50 “.960. The second and third places were hotly contested.
As for the overall positions, the winner was Fernando Toribio Pérez with a time of 44 minutes and 25 seconds ahead of Antonio González García, 44 minutes and 58 seconds in a race that had an exciting finish as both competitors were equal before tackling the last ‘spider web’ obstacle. Airam Fernández Pérez came third with a time of 45 minutes and 50 seconds.
This video shows all the competitors being put through their paces on the fun but very challenging trail run with obstacles. Everyone got wet and muddy but had a thoroughly good time. We would like to thank the organisers for another great race and look forward to next year.
