GFNY returns to Puerto Rico

Scheduled for October 9, 2022 the Caribbean island will host a completely revamped GFNY Puerto Rico 

 

 

The competitive long distance of GFNY Puerto Rico starts and finishes at the spectacular El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo. The 92 miles long course with 6013 feet of climbing tackles the hilly roads on the eastern part of the island along El Yunque National Forest. The non-competitive course is 54 miles long and has 3285 feet of climbing.

Located on the easternmost tip of Puerto Rico, Fajardo is a great base to explore Puerto Rico’s nearby islands and cays. Known for breathtaking views and pristine natural reserves, the town is only 40 minutes away from SJU airport.

 

“We’re excited to be back in Puerto Rico after a short stint back in 2015,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “It’s a brand new course on roads that I know well and was able to help choose for the race. With the El Conquistador Resort as a host, it’s going to be a hard to beat experience.”
