Our aids this year will go mainly on schools renovation projects, on school kits for the children (school bags and stationeries)  as we did in the past, but also on a new project of providing new school desks which is concerning the majority of the schools that we had visited.
 
Lastly, in order to allow the participation of a greater number of runners  from Costa Rica on the next editions of The Costa Rica Ultra Trail, we will propose in 2013, a stage open to all the local runners, for approximately 42 km and 2.700 meters of positive difference in level.

On the top of that, the French embassy will sponsor the Costa Rican runners Roiny Villegas, winner 2009, and 2nd in 2010 and 2011.
 
The Costa Rica Ultra Trail, La Transtica is organized by the French associations CG Sport Event and El Nino but is also represented officially in Costa Rica by the “asociación deportiva El Nino” registered at the “registro nacional “of Costa Rica since May 2012.
