Unicaja Banco sponsors the national Farinato Race circuit, which ends this weekend in the Seville town of Mairena de Aljarafe. This obstacle course race has taken place this year in several Spanish cities such as Mérida, Oviedo or, recently, San Martín de Vega (Madrid), with high number of participants.
For this last event of the circuit, to be held on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6, at the recinto ferial of Mairena del Aljarafe, 2,500 people are expected to participate. In addition to local athletes, there are registered participants from all Spanish provinces, as well as participants from other countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom.
Two different courses have been organized, one of 7 and another of 13 kilometers and, in any case, the circuit will be, according to the organizers, very fast. The circuit features a especially attractive are close to Arroyo Porzuna. Likewise, a large presence of public is expected throughout the race.
In addition to the competitive race, there will be sporting activities and experiences for families and young people, as well as duels and beginner races, with participation open to children.
During the event there will be a foodtruck area, a giant LED screen, and a zumba show.
Ability to overcome
Under the slogan ‘There is no greater victory than beating oneself’, the Farinato Race competitions take place on extremely tough terrain with a variety of obstacles that test the skill, dexterity, limits and ability to overcome of the participants.
Among the obstacles that make up the courses are trenches, straight wall, barbed wire fences, flip, weight load or handrail, as well as muddy terrain.
Unicaja Banco collaborates with this initiative with the aim of bringing all kinds of sports and leisure activities to the general public and promoting the practice of sports, the values of teamwork and healthy lifestyle habits.
