The extreme race, which was organized by the company War Race and Eventos deportivos S.A., known as La Lodiza, did not have the respective permission of the intendancy of Guayas.
In this competition died, the past april 14, Cinthya Nivelo Pacheco, 25 years old, while she was competing, because of extreme dehydration.
It became known that the organizers of this competition did not process the permission in the Intendancy of Guayas, and neither the permission from the fire brigade of Guayaquil, while the representatives of War Race charged $30 each of the 900 participants and obtained the sponsorship of at least 19 brands.
For his part, Freddy Nivelo, Cinthya’s father, said that next week he will file a lawsuit against the organizing company and Rodolfo Farfan, its Manager. Nivelo questioned the alleged bad organization of the event, assuring that there was no sufficient supply of hydration points along the circuit.
On Tuesday, War Race, through a newsletter, said they were not responsible for what happened, since they made the competitors sign an agreement which exempted the company from any accident suffered during the race.
However, yesterday the Ombudsman, Ramiro Rivadeneira, explained in Guayaquil that despite the document signed by the competitors, War Race and Eventos Deportivos S.A. are not exempt from responsibility.
