As the weather gets warmer so the desire to get out, and exercise becomes part of our daily routine again, is when the Esports Parra 10km run around Girona brings out the participants and the crowds.
Few can achieve the times that the first finishers manage of 31 mins but everyone has a great time (after its over!) and feel proud of their own achievements. This year the age range went from a girl of 11yrs old to a veteran of 84, both of whom received special prizes to salute their efforts. There is a shorter race held for children before the main event and everyone receives a drink and a bag of strawberries at the end.
Girona is the perfect place for these runs as it is mostly flat and has interesting streets to choose as a route through the Old Town (beware cobbles!) and the Devesa Park as well as the commercial heart of town if you have time to window-shop!
