VILLAJOYOSA council is staging another group walk aimed at getting local people fit, active and healthy.
Following on from the success of the first ‘Salida Biosaludable’, which attracted some 300 participants, the local authority’s Sport and Well-being departments have organised a second edition of the event.
The walk will take place next Sunday December 15 as part of the council’s plans to promote exercise and good health.
The idea is to raise awareness about making an effort not to lead an entirely sedentary lifestyle by offering different routes on paths around the municipality which are suitable for all the family. They are even suitable for prams and pushchairs.
At the same time, the council points out, the initiative also provides a way of discovering different locations and scenery.
The walk this time will start off at 9.30am from the market ground, going from the Ribassos area to the Roca Encantada, passing by Olivera Grossa. It will end at the Plaza de Ermita, where walkers will be given water, fruit and other products.
“We continue promoting health and our town”, commented Sports councilllor Jose Ramon Ucles.
“These walks are a great opportunity to instill health habits in our population and to share a lovely day in our marvellous landscapes”, he added.
Registration in the walk is free. It can be done online at https://forms.gle/wfa1EE4PpMsvGVYA8, by calling 9665 08 460, or in person at the Marta Baldo sports centre from 9am to 2pm Monday to Friday and from 6-8pm Monday to Thursday.
