The Municipality of Silves once again promotes the Valentine’s March, through the sports sector, 2023 edition, which will integrate the program of the 7th Mostra Silves Capital da Laranja.
The event, which will take place on the 12th of February, will take place at the FISSUL zone and start at 10:00 am.
Taking into account their physical condition and preference, each participant is invited to choose one of the two routes presented: one of 4.5 km, with a low degree of difficulty, and another of 10.5 km, with a medium degree of difficulty, which will have a small variant (+700m) for the bravest. The routes end next to the FISSUL building, where the 7th Mostra Silves Capital da Laranja will take place.
Entries are open and must be made here: https://www.cm-silves.pt/Preview.aspx?pageID=9668&ver=18552 or at the Sports sector (located in the Silves Municipal Swimming Pools complex), by telephone 282 440 270, from the email firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as at the Parish Councils of the Municipality, where interested parties can also register to reserve their seats on the buses that CMS will make available on that day (seats limited). These can also be carried out on the same day, on site, up to half an hour before the start of the activity.
We remind you that the municipality continues to develop the campaign “Lixo Zero 0 – Ambiente 100”, 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 bring 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.
