NIJAR will for the second year in a row host the La Moruna race to raise funds for the fight against addictions.
The event will take place on Sunday April 26, the local authority has announced. Participants will either run or walk a 16.6-kilometre route between Isleta de Moro and the Monsul beach in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park. Walkers will set off at 9am and runners at 10am.
The race is organised by the non-profit Nuevo Rumbo association in collaboration with Nijar council.
Nuevo Rumbo has worked within the field of drug dependencies and dealing with the related problems among young people and their families since 1985.
Speaking at the event presentation, Nijar Mayor Esperanza Perez Felices highlighted the importance of these kinds of initiatives.
“It is essential to give visibility to however many actions are carried out to combat addictions and the extent of the drama they represent for many families”, the Mayor commented.
“On this matter the government team is going to firmly collaborate on information, prevention, support and dissemination of programmes, and we want to thank the Nuevo Rumbo association for their daily work in our municipality”, she added.
Perez Felices also underlined what she described as her administration’s “genuine interest in promoting the practice of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle in our municipality.”
Registration for the La Moruna will remain open right up until the day of the race via the website
