La Laguna’s Taco race will benefit diabetes association
The collection of the VI Popular Carrera of Taco, which will be held on May 6th, will be entirely destined for the Association of Diabetes of Tenerife.
This test, organised by La Laguna council’s sports department, has been celebrated since 2013 with an average of 500 participants. The objective is to promote physical activity as a preventative habit of diseases, among them diabetes, which has a great impact in the islands.
The circuit, with the start and finish located on Avenida de los Majuelos, has several distances, with a maximum of five kilometres. Faced with the forecast of a large influx of runners, in this edition, the two routes of the Los Majuelos Avenue will be completely cut off.
The price of the dorsals to participate in this sporting event ranges between two and four euros. The registration can be done through the website www.deportelagunero.com or in person at the offices of the OAD itself from Monday to Friday from 9am to 2pm. The term expires on Wednesday, May 3rd.
This charity test, sponsored by Fred Olsen Express, Coca-Cola, DeLaLaguna, La Caixa Social Work and the Association of Diabetes of Tenerife, has a maximum capacity of 1,000 participants.
Avenida de Los Majuelos, the crossing to El Cardonal and the Los Andenes park will be the stages of this race. The test consists of three categories, Benjamín and Alevín that will be over 700 metres, infant and cadet of 1500 metres, and youth, senior and veterans who will compete in the distance of 5,000 metres.
