San Silvestre Golden Mile to end Arona’s year
Arona will close the year with the San Silvestre Golden Mile of Playa de Las Américas on December 31st.
The race will run through the Golden Mile of Playa de Las Américas with a circuit approved by the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation.
For the last day of this year, the Sports Board of Arona council, in collaboration with the Grupasca Sports Commi-ssion and the Arona Athletics Club, are organising this third edition of the San Silvestre Golden Mile in Playa de Las Américas, a race that runs through an approved urban circuit of five kilometres in the well-known Golden Mile of Playa de Las Américas.
At 3pm, the departure of the minor, pre-benjamín, benjamín, alevines and infantil categories is scheduled. About 3.30pm, it will be the turn of the cadets and at 4pm, the older con-testants will undertake two laps of the circuit, completing the five kilometres.
The race will be controlled by judges of the Tenerife Athletics Federation of Tenerife and will run through Avenida de las Américas. Since October 15 registration is open for this test at www.gesport-canarias.com, which will end on December 28. Entrants can be as young as four.
Special prizes and trophies will be awarded to the first six of each category, in addition to the prize for beating the test record, the first athlete to cross the finish line and the first to cross it in the first round. In addition, companies in the area have given gifts that will be raffled at the end of the test.
In this edition the novelty is the homologation of the urban circuit by the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation, which will serve to register, in the federation, the marks ob-tained and thus be valid to qualify for the various championships of Spain of the modality.
