Next Friday, August 30, Let’s Go Run and the Friday Races will hold the 6th edition of the White Race, which is imbued with the spirit of White Night, one of the biggest events in the Algarve.
This run / walk was born in 2014, in a perfect partnership with two major enterprises in the municipality of Loulé, Aquashow and Pestana Vila Sol, and this year's edition will be an improved repeat of what happened in 2018.
In terms of the race, there will be two alternative courses for the participants to choose from: one of 8 kilometers with the connection of the water park to the beginning of the Vila Sol golf course and back; and another of 12 kilometers, with a unique opportunity to travel 5 kilometers along beautiful trails of this golf course that meets excellent conditions for its maintenance.
Runners / hikers are gathered from 7 pm on the day of the event in the Aquashow main pool. By 20h00, the animation and warm-up begins, at 20h30, given the departure for the run / walk, in one of the two courses. Upon returning to the amusement park, a refreshing swim in the wave pool and plenty of excitement await the participants, where they can delight until about 23:30.
Distribution of t-shirts and bags is planned for the first 1,000 participants. On the other hand, there will be collection of caps for solidarity purposes with associations that work with children in need. Lots of music and the already famous final bath complete the program.
This is a free event for participants, without prior registration, open to all ages and prepared for people with reduced mobility and pushchairs. The use of white t-shirt is mandatory. This is a different way to start a great family weekend in the Algarve.
The 6th edition of the White Race has the support of Loulé City Council, as part of the Active Summer Program 2019, and is sponsored by Guronsan, Ec Travel, Garvetur and Visacar.
According to the organization, about 1,250 participants are expected.
