Espíritu Triabona calls on entries for three categories for 2016
Granadilla’s sports department, in association with the athletic and mountain club Espíritu Triabona, has announced further details of its 2016 event.
This important test will bring together numerous athletes who will run through the most emblematic streets of the historic centre of the town.
The Triabona will be held on Saturday, June 4th, the week in which celebrations take place for festivities in honour of San Antonio de Padua and Ntra. Sra. del Rosario.
There will be three modes encompassing a race for children under the title of “Los Pequeños Solidarios”, a five kilometre race and another over ten kilometres. All will have different categories, in addition to those for leading regional athletes.
La Espíritu Triabona 2016 is the first scoring test in the Tenerife road race circuit in the distance of five kilometres.
It has also recently won approval from the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation, the fourth circuit in the Canary Islands to do so in the 10km mode.
The registration period is now open up until May 31st. The cost for the 5k is ten euros and 12 euro for the 10k. Organisers say these fees are in line with the times, without skimping on the many products and services the runners will receive on the day. Sign up on www.triabona.com
For children wanting to take part in the solidarity race, they are invited to bring along a donation of a kilo of non-perishable food. This will be distributed by the charity Caritas to needy families in the municipality. One euro will also be asked for and the proceeds will be donated entirely to the Canary Solidarity Association.
The whole event will also be enriched with other attractions such as exhibitions and a raffle.
Sports councillor, Nacho Mendoza Morales and club president, Alexander Pérez González would like to encourage a good turnout to help continue the sporting success of this event which has become a reference point on the island.
