Also beginning August 10th, those who wish to make a donation of $5,000 (five thousand pesos) to the Mexican Red Cross can register for the Xel-Há Triathlon, securing their place in the competition and an invitation to the Benefit Dinner that will take place on Sunday, November 20th at Xcaret Park.
For their part, the general public and those interested in participating in the Women Beginners category can register online from August 23rd through September 20th or until the places available are exhausted.
