San Silvestre pulls in the competitors to close the year
The XXXVIII San Silvestre Lagunera has exceeded 1,500 entries with still a month to go before New Year’s Eve
The Autonomous Sports Organisation (OAD) of the City of La Laguna, organiser of the sports event, reminds would-be competitors that the deadline for registration will close on December 20.
The procedure to sign up for the last sporting event of the year in the Canary Islands can be carried out through the website www.deportelagu-nero.com, duly filling out the form and making the payment through the web platform. It can also be done in person at OAD offices, from 9am to 1pm.
“We have set a cap of 3,200 people registered for this edition and we are certainly surprised by the excellent progress of the registrations. It could happen that the deadline is closed early if the quota is exhausted. In any case, I think that on December 31, starting at 6pm, we will live a sport party, ”said sports councillor, Idaira Afonso.
“This sporting event is a good example of the co-mmitment we make from the OAD for the promotion of physical activity and for healthy lifestyle habits. We understand that there is nothing better to say goodbye to the year than doing sports.”
The Olympic Vicente Hernández and Raquel Aróstegui were the winners of the last edition of the San Silvestre, which brought together more than 3,000 runners through the historic centre of La Laguna, in addition to thousands of people following the test in the margins of the route .
Started almost four decades ago, San Silvestre Lagunera has been growing every year to the point of being on the island’s athletic calendar as one of the most outstanding competitions and with the highest demand in the Canary Islands for the prestige of participating in it.
