Thousands raised in charity run in Pulpi

WINNERS: Some of the trophy winners at the race.

MORE than €3,000 were raised for a disabled charity by an event in Pulpi, reports say.

The multi-disciplinary challenge also broke the record for the number of participants, according to Spanish media.

Saturday’s hike, cycle and run saw more than 350 people join the event, which was raising funds for the Association of People with Disabilities.

Participants reportedly left La Legua sports centre in the morning, before hiking 22km (or 10km for beginners), cycled 50km on mountain bikes and then ran 14km.

The day finished with the organisers – Pulpi Town Hall and the Provincial Council of Almeria – providing a goody bag and a huge, freshly cooked paella.

The mayor of Pulpi, Juan Pedro Garcia, competed in the race alongside a number of other local politicians, as part of a ‘government team,’ according to reports.
