Silves Valentine's March is almost here

Initiative is part of the 7th Mostra Silves Capital da Laranja

The Municipality of Silves will once again promote, on the 12th of February, the Valentine's March, through the sports sector, which will be part of the program of the 7th Mostra Silves Capital da Laranja. Departure is in the FISSUL zone at 10:00 am.

Participants can choose one of the two routes presented, 4,5 kilometers (km), with a low degree of difficulty, and another 10,5km, with a medium degree of difficulty, which will have a small variant (another 700 meters) for the bravest . The routes end next to the FISSUL building, where the 7th Mostra Silves Capital da Laranja will take place.

Entries can be made here or in the sports sector (located in the Silves Municipal Pools complex), via telephone 282 440 270, email address [email protected], as well as in the Parish Councils of the municipality.

In a note, the municipality recalls that it continues to develop the “Lixo Zero 0 – Ambiente 100” campaign, an initiative that aims to raise awareness among all participants of the need to reduce waste and reduce the environmental footprint.

In this sense, each participant is asked to take their bottle/canteen so that, during the race, the organization can fill it up.

The Valentine's March is part of the 2022-2023 Algarve Regional Walking and Running Calendar, in partnership with the Portuguese Institute of Sports and Youth, the National Walking and Running Programme, the National Plan for Ethics in Sport, the National Plan for Sports for All and with the support of the Silves School Grouping, Frutas Martinho, Silves Volunteer Firefighters, GNR – Silves Territorial Detachment, João de Deus Mutual Aid Association and the Piaget de Silves Institute.
