New in 2021: GFNY Mazatlán

December 16, 2020

Scheduled for May 2, 2021, the inaugural GFNY Mazatlán will become the third GFNY event in Mexico.

NEW YORK CITY, December 16, 2020 – Known as the pearl of the pacific, GFNY Mazatlán will offer athletes an exciting springtime race with all the frills and party atmosphere that GFNY Mexico events have become renown for on May 2, 2021.

Mazatlán is a resort town located on the pacific shores of Sinaloa. A hot spot for sports on water and on land, the city is full of colorful Mexican colonial architecture, quaint streets and an array of cultural activities. The restaurant scene will satisfy the foodie in everyone, with a famous array of seafood, renown as the best in Mexico. Mazatlán also offers all types of beaches, small and large. Post-race, a few days should be put aside to enjoy all that this pearl of the pacific offers.

“We are very excited to add Mazatlán to our GFNY Mexico races,” said Lidia Fluhme, GFNY’s co-founder. “Mazatlán offers a combination of sports and relaxation for a perfect race-vacation. It’s the ideal springtime race with its gently rolling course, 21km of beach front views and quaint cobbled roads filled with Mexican charm.”

Starting and finishing at the famous Fisherman monument, the competitive two loop long route totaling 140km will take athletes down the beachfront Malecon Avenue and then into the historic colonial streets. Riders will then head inland towards the countryside on newly paved rolling hills with the stunning Sierra Madre backdrop and mountain views. In true Mexican hospitality, expect the streets to be lined with people cheering all the way to finish line. The 70km medium route is one full lap of the long loop.

The website is mazatlan.gfny.com and registration is open. Already over 300 riders are registered.

Top 10% (20% at regional championships) of finishers in each age group qualify for the Racer Corral at every GFNY World event.
