ALBOX’S eighth edition of the Carrera Nocturna (night race) is being held on Friday February 27.
Runners set off at 9pm from the town square, running seven kilometres through the town’s streets, and there are prizes for the top three in each category. One euro from each entry will be donated to the AECC, a Spanish cancer association.
Race distances vary according to age. Children can run from the age of four to 17 with courses starting at 150 metres, going up through 300 metres, 600 metres, 1.2 kilometres and 1.8 kilometres.
Adults aged 18 and over get to run further with seven kilometres, although these are split into age groups also. In short, there are categories for all ages and anyone who wants to help in the fight against cancer.
For further information, visit the municipal sports pavilion or telephone (in Spanish) 647 081 346. Registration will take place from 8pm on the night.
Councillor for Sports in Albox, Francisco Carrillo, said: “After the success of previous editions, Albox is hosting the night race for the eighth consecutive year, a race that is becoming a sporting reference for the town and the province.
“This year, in addition to being a healthy pastime and for enjoyment, it is most importantly brining money for a united purpose, the AECC.”
