A gentle stroll!


If you are looking for a bit of exercise tomorrow morning and at the same time benefit a great cause then go down to the Plaza de la Constitución for 9:30am.

The walk will be on the flat over 7kms and take about 2 hours to complete.

Participants are asked to donate 3 euros – the first 150 will get a T-shirt and the rest a badge from Manos Unidos.

Now for the route: from the Plaza de la Constitución the route will take the walkers to the Auditorium and across the bridge to “Los Heurtos de Ocio”. From there they will walk to the houses "Los Estacas". They will then follow the “Reguerón"and travel past the sports centre in the direction of Jacarilla. At the first bridge, the route will detour to "El Copo" and from there return towards Bigastro along to the road to "la Pasarela" and finally la Plaza de la Constitución.

There is more than a strong possibility of rain today but tomorrow promises to be bright and sunny with a strong breeze to keep the walkers cool.

Pam and I walked last year in support of the Alzheimer's association in Bigastro and yes the route was flat. However, most of the walkers were young and fit and so we soon got left behind. Pamela’s knees started to trouble her and so we took a short cut at the Sports Centre back into Bigastro. Even still, we were knackered by the time we reached the park. We are more than willing to donate 6 euros to Manos Unidos but will pass on walking this time!!
