Family participation: Runners of all ages. SOURCE: EWN

FUENGIROLA held their V Solidarity Race “Fuengirola against machismo” on Sunday November 24. This year, the activity that combines sport with awareness had almost doubled in size going from 500 to almost 900 registered athletes, according to the data provided by the Department of Sports. 

The event is organized to show support for International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25 with all the money raised going to groups that have programs aimed at fighting gender violence

EWN was in attendance to watch many people young and old come together as a community in what was a fun-packed family event on a beautiful sunny Sunday in Plaza de España.

The race was broken down into certain stages for age groups. Children under twelve would run from 200 to 1,000 meters depending on their ages. Whilst the rest would have a two kilometres run ahead of them leaving from the Plaza.

Participants gave it their all whilst the spectating crowds roared with encouragement. The most fun to watch were the younger children who seemed to be having an amazing time and took great delight in showing off their runner’s medals.
