Peruvian Marathon; Running, Walking "Chaski"

The Peruvian people of Helotes celebrated a "Chaskis" marathong in the town center last Saturday. The IALS students of Palo Alto helped the organizing committee and we were there all day. The marathon began at 8:45 am when one of the organizers made a speech and welcomed all the people. At 9:00, 150 participants in this marathon began to run. Finally, when it was over, the organizers awarded prizes to the champions. The Sports activities began after the race. There were many games and many people sang. After the music, everyone ate Peruvian food such as anticucho, and tamales. I really liked this activity; we finally returned to our home at 3:00pm.
