On your marks for La Vila race day


THIS coming Sunday (March 26) sees the annual Cursa Popular I Volta a Peu La Vilajoyosa, which is now in its tenth year.

Competitors will run a course of either 8.7km, or a shorter 5km. These will be followed by children’s races of various distances and categories. The longer race, Cursa Popular begins at 10.00h, followed by the shorter Volta a Peu five minutes later.

Both races begin and end on the seafront promenade. Once complete, the children’s competition begins around 11.30h

As in previous years, competitors and spectators are asked to bring along donations of cocoa and sugar, which are then passed on to local charity Caritas La Vila.
