Today, Sunday 2nd October 2011, saw the Almuñecar, 14km Run, starting from within the football stadium and then continuing through the streets of the town. With hundreds of participants, this yearly event is extremely well attended, with some runners taking the race extremely seriously, whilst others just wanted to have a good time and beat their fastest time.
As always, the race saw many entrants running for our, much-loved, local, cancer charity, AECC (Asociacion Española Contra el Cancer). These local residents all gave up their time, not just during the run, but also obtaining sponsorship and training for the day. Some ran just a couple of K’s, while others ran the entire 14… with some respectable times we might add!
It’s not too late if you want to sponsor one or all of the runners, just pop into the AECC shop (opposite The Business hair salon) any Tuesday, tell them how impressed you were with the efforts of those who ran and make your donation. This is a worthy and important cause, so don’t hold back with your shekels and give generously.
Here are a couple of pictures of the event and there are many more in the gallery section.
Well done everyone who ran or sponsored a runner… you do the town proud.
