XXVI Cursa Popular Vila de Pedreguer

Race Date: Saturday, 13/05/2017
Race Distance: 10 Km

We ran this lively, noisy local Spanish village race in 2015. 2 years on and very different emotions. Last Sunday, 6 cyclists from Javea Triathlon Club nearby were mown down in an horrific accident - 3 died, 2 still hospitalised, 1 escaped injury. So 1200+ runners with 75 from Javea TC, all of us wearing black ribbons, gather for 1 minute's silence, then applause. A very warm evening for 2 laps through the village and into the 'campo' - with hills - and much local support. The Javea TC runners finished en masse, with fellow Club runners applauding them through the Finish, along with the crowd. An evening to remember.
