This with the intention of reactivating and recovering the State economy from the problems of world order and the health crisis generated by COVID-19. Currently the stage of re-entry to the new normal and the transition to outdoor activities have determined the projection in the organization of face-to-face events, when highly successful virtual events have been held throughout the year.

Finally, a third party, determined by the numerical reason and information documented in the cycling, parachute, and Trail events that have marked the experience of highly successful sporting events with influx and interest in other types of tourism in the entity.
