Long distance fundraiser for Malaga men

TWO Malaga men in their 60s have decided to do the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage to raise funds for children.

Always a physical challenge, the pilgrimage is sure to be even tougher if one intends to do the 1,520 kilometres from Le Puy En Velay in France to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain mostly at a run.

Yet that is exactly what doctor Roman Manteca and retired businessman Pablo Chica are intending to try and do.

The pair are selling ‘charity kilometres’ at €5 each and will be donating the money raised to Luis Olivares children’s foundation.

Setting out on April 16, the men are expecting to cover an average of 50 kilometres a day, many of them at a run, and (rest days included) hope to reach Santiago on May 21.
