La Caleta night run attracts huge entry

HUNDREDS of athletes are expected to take part in the 4th La Caleta Night Run tomorrow (Saturday), organised by the Insular Athletics Federation, in collaboration with Adeje Council.

During the day, from 12.30pm, organisers will be hosting a series of social-harmony events, handing out numbers to registered participants, and inviting people to take part in Kangoo and Zumba master-classes.  There will also be a Food Truck, as well as DJs present.

There are three categories this year: a 2km “confidence” walk (for children and parents), in addition to a 5km and 10km run.

The first 2km event will be staged at 7pm, under the social project, “Moving the Planet”, which asks parents to wear a blindfold and be guided by their children.

The project is being held to raise awareness of the importance of inclusion in our society, of everyone with some kind of physical challenge.

The event also creates stronger links between family members, and taking part will be a well-known “influencer”, Jesús Hernández, who, at 10, is the youngest sports presenter in Spain, and he’ll be assisting his  father (www.jesushf.com).

The 5km and 10km runs begin at 8m, with the prize-giving at 9.30pm.

You must register to take part in any of the events, and you can do so at TDC sports shops in Adeje and Cabo Blanco, or online www.conxip.com.

All money raised from the inscriptions will be donated to an “athletes without frontiers” organisation, and also to the local La Caleta Residents’ Association.

Their members are working to convert the coastal village into a European Cardio Health Space, certified by the European Foundation For Health, Research and Education.
