We all know that exercise is good for us but sometimes we just need a little nudge to get up and go. The nudge we are suggesting is Dro.Me.A Racing’s eighth annual race for the prevention of cancer, which will get us all in our trainers next Saturday.
The race, which will take place at Athalassa park in south Nicosia (see map below), is being organised in co-operation with the Association of Cancer Patients & Friends (PASYKAF), Yeri Municipality and the Association for the Prevention and Handling of Violence in the Family (SPAVO). There will be three categories for racers, one is a five-kilometre race for those 15 years old and over, a 10-kilometre race for those over 16, and an 800-metre run for children up to the age of 14.
Pre-registrations for the five-kilometre and 10-kilometre races can be done on www.dromearacing.com by December 3, or on the event day between 8:30am and 9:30 am, and the actual race will begin at 10am. Registrations for the 800m can only be done on the day of the race.
For those taking part in the 10-kilometre race there is a participation fee of €10, for the five-kilometre run the fee is €5 and the children in the 800-metre race get to run for free, but parental consent is required for those under 18 years old.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to PASYKAF.
The eighth annual 5km and 10km race. December 5. 8.30am. Athalassa Park, south Nicosia. €10/5. Tel: +357-99-473538
