Since 2013 Sanitas and Marca have been organising a circuit in major cities in Spain where athletes can run either in the 5km or 10Km race. Ayamonte is to be added this year to that Circuit with the race taking part here on 25th July.
The circuit current has 11 venues including Madrid, Valencia, Vigo Valladolid, Alicante & Segovia to name a few and it is the first time a town the size of Ayamonte has been included. The Mayor of Ayamonte Antonio Rodríguez Castillo who was in Madrid to finalise details of the event was delighted to bring such a prestigious event to Ayamonte. “It is great that top flight athletes along with local athletes will be running along the streets of Isla Canela and Ayamonte in July. It also confirms Ayamonte’s place on the road running circuit and will bring a welcome boost to the local economy and tourism for the area.
The Mayor also pointed out that with the main sponsors of the event being La Marca newspaper that Ayamonte would get a lot of well-deserved publicity. La Marca is the most read sports newspaper in Spain and their website has daily readership of over 3.6 million.
