The town hosts this Sunday its VII Popular Race on the occasion of the Patron Saint’s Day. The appointment was presented this morning by the Councilor for Sports, Ramon Escarabajal, the mayor, Emilio Fernandez and the mayor of Fiestas, Nely Ruiz.
This year the Department of Sports has wanted to convey its support to the local athlete Alex Carrillo, a young promise. The poster announcer of the race is the local sportsman during one of his races.
The test of this year will begin at 10.00 hours from the plaza Miguel Hernández and will have a tour of 5 kilometers, one lap and ten kilometers, two laps. The organization will carry out a solidary collection of non-perishable food for Caritas de Redován, with the aim of distributing them among the most needy people. The food will be delivered just before collecting the number.
The test will count on supplies throughout the course, which will be totally level, and will have trophies for the top three men and women in each category. There will also be a prize for the two largest clubs.
Last year took place after the race a meal for all the attendants and public of a giant hamburger. This year there will be a free rice and beer paella for everyone.
Those interested can make their inscriptions, with a cost of 9 euros, through the web of ‘www.asuspuestos.com’. Entries will be closed tomorrow at 12 noon.
“This is a completely flat race, that’s why it attracts many athletes who try to beat their marks,” said Escarabajal and added that “we invite all the neighbors of the region to participate or to see this popular race.” The councilman also wanted to thank the collaboration of all companies, as well as local associations, Party Commission and Local Police, Civil Protection, among others.
For his part, the mayor, Emilio Fernández, has invited all the neighbors to enjoy a sporting event that every year “exceeds expectations.”
