FROM Cafecitos to Mojitos !!!

The organizers of Cuba Nostalgia have created the annual Guayabera Run/Walk. A 5k parody on the life of a cuban leaving Cuba for Miami... It is the first heritage themed 5k of its kind in South Florida. Where else could you experience "obstacles" and "challenges" that take you back to the days in Cuba and then bring you full circle back to Miami. This run is sure to meet all expectations of the Cubans and the friends of the cubans alike. You like to party, well we got the healthy, fun, cuban themed party run that will have you wondering why we never did this before....

All participants also receive a complimentary ticket for his/herself and a friend to attend Cuba Nostalgia. No other race gets you more value for your money...
