No matter the weather, those intrepid runners who belong to Los Bandidos  took part in the Vera 4k and 11k races on Saturday June 29.

Hot humid evening for running

15 hardy competitors turned up on a hot and humid evening for the races which started and finished at Club Deportivo in Puerto Rey.

It was a winding route which took the runners past the nudist beach and as the event was well organised, there were plenty of much needed water stations and a very welcome man with a hose pipe cooling everyone down!

There was lots of support from fellow Bandidos out on the course encouraging all runners, but especially those racing for the first time.

All finishers received a commemorative medal, a race t-shirt and bag, as well as a lettuce and cherry tomatoes with beer, food and drink available at the end finish.
