2nd Edotion of the charity Cochinilla Trail run at Charco del Palo

On the 19th October, Charco del Palo in the North of Lanzarote was host to the 2nd edition of the Cochinilla Trail, a run which raises awareness for breast cancer as well as collecting food for struggling families in the area.

The 10km run started at five in the afternoon with 400 competitors on the start line. The event was preceded with music and a zumba warm up. The Lanzarote International Marathon also had a stand and made a donation to the cause.

Local Olympic marathon runner José Carlos Hernández supported the race from the start line, firing the starting pistol signalling the 250 men and 150 women to begin the race which was for such good causes.

The winner of the race was Evaristo Almeida, who was on holiday from Las Palmas. He thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and he felt fortunate to have been able to take part in such an important event. He hopes to return for the 3rd edition.  The winning female was Aroa Merino.
