“I had a significant experience at Tepec Trail. The final round of the Golden Trail Series by Salomon brought the best runners in Mexico to compete in a technical 40 km mountain race. I had the misfortunate of starting in the last hit, which meant I had to pass hundreds of slower runners.In Oax Sport, we provide sports management services to local athletes from the communities of Oaxaca. Services include sponsorship, travel arrangement, competition management, public relations, training, and development. Our work will not be possible without the support of the community through financial donations, and the support of corporations through sponsorship.
In a trail run, it’s almost impossible to run at one’s pace while trying to overtake through tight paths, water crossing, technical uphill, and downhill. Even though, I am happy to be part of this event and glad to know that I had the performance and preparation to get a better result if I had started with runners in my level.” Rosalino Meneses Lopez. Oax Sport Athlete.
“I am more than satisfied with my result in Tepec Trail in Huasca de Ocampo; we ran on a technical trail, full of mud, obstacles, many climbs, river crossings, but above all a lot of fun, my main aim was to get down from the general position of a 44th place got on the Cerro Rojo Trail to an 18th place in Tepec.ABOUT US
