More than 5,000 women will participate in the Central Asturian Milk Women’s Race in Seville, which is held this Sunday from 10:00 a.m. on the streets of the Andalusian capital, the organizers announced this Wednesday in their official presentation.
This figure is somewhat lower than in previous years, since participation was limited to this number in order to guarantee health and control protocols for the pandemic.
The ‘Pink Tide’ will start from the Paseo de Las Delicias and will complete the almost 7 kilometers of route to the finish line located in the heart of the Plaza de España. The objective of the day is to promote the active fight against breast cancer, to continue promoting sports practice among women of all ages, and to support the various solidarity and advocacy projects for the role of women in all social spheres.
The Seville test of the national circuit has been presented at the Marqués del Contadero Tourism offices with the presence of David Guevara, deputy mayor delegate of the Area of Ecological Transition and Sports; Javier Gavela, responsible for the Organization of the Women’s Race; Carla Herrera, founder of Pulseras Rosas; Inmaculada Barbadillo representing the Spanish Association Against Cancer; and Ángela Claverol from AMAMA Sevilla.
Some of the best Seville runners also attended, such as Carmen Valle Atienza and her daughter Claudia Rodríguez, who will also participate, or Mude Rodríguez, a four-time winner of the test although she will be out on Sunday, and Miguel Nogales Castilla, Director of Institutions at Banco Santander; and Raquel Algarra, from TotalEnergies, sponsors of the event.
Before the start, a tribute will be paid to the Sevillian Olympian Blanca Manchón and the Paralympic athlete Sara Fernández, who will accompany the more than 5,000 runners for being two great references in women’s sport and examples of struggle, improvement and commitment. The paratriathlete Eva Moral, from the Sports Santander team, will also participate.
During the presentation an act of ‘Your hair is worth a treasure’ has been developed thanks to the Pulseras Rosas association, which is present in all the appointments of the Women’s Race and has cut the ponytail of Eva García, who has already been the first volunteer of the project.
Carla Herrera, head of Pink Bracelets, explained how with the sale of these natural hair ponytails of more than 20 centimeters they manage to cover the costs of wigs for women with few economic resources and who are in full treatment against cancer.
The runner’s t-shirts, number-chip and bag will be delivered at FIBES on Friday, November 26, from 3 to 8 p.m., and on Saturday, November 27, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Although the Runner’s Expo is also held physically, the Central Dairy Asturian Women’s Race has facilitated the delivery of the runner’s bag and the official shirt to your home.
