Next Saturday the12th April, Rincon de la Victoria will hold the first ‘Carrera Popular de la Mujer’; an organised sporting event to support the fight against cancer in aid of the CUDECA foundation and the ‘Asociación de Mujeres Operadas de Cáncer de Mama’ (ASAMMA).
The race is aimed at women and is expected to gain around 500 participants, although, the registration of men and children who want to join in with the sporting event will also be allowed, says the sports councillor, Lydia Montes.
The councillor has specified that the event is not a competition, “there will be two ways of carrying out the race; by running or walking, and a distance of 5 km is set for both options”. There will be no timekeeping, prizes or categories.”
The event will begin at 11.00 starting from the tourist office, situated on the ‘Paseo Maritimo’ in Rincon de la Victoria, where there will also be sessions of Zumba and fitness aerobics.
Registration costs 6 euros and can be carried out online through www.triatlonmalaga.es or in the sports office in Torre del Benagalbon; ‘la Oficina de Deportes del Pabellón Cubierto Municipal “Rubén Ruzafa”‘. The closing date for registration is the 9th of April for personalised numbers, but it will be possible to register on the day of the event, from 8.30 in the tourist office.
Numbers and a commemorative t-shirt can be collected on the 11th April from 9:00 until 15:00 and 17:00 until 19:00 in the ‘Pabellón’, or on the day of the event from 9:00 at the starting line.
