José Carlos Hernández inspires the kids at CEIP Costa Teguise to put on their running shoes

With the new school term fast approaching in Lanzarote, children are making the most of the remaining days before returning to a structured week. Thoughts are also turning to the year ahead with new opportunities available as clubs too open their doors for the new term with a variety of activities to choose from.

Children from CEIP Costa Teguise will be thinking of a new challenge ahead, the Lanzarote International Marathon. Olympic marathon runner José Carlos Hernández visited the school as the end of last term to give the children some training tips. During his visit the children were eager to find out more about his life as a runner and his recent experience at the London Olympics 2012.

A couple of weeks after José Carlos Hernández visited the school he visited them again as they took part in their own race along the Avienda in Costa Teguise. Having already enjoyed this race experience, the children are now well prepared for the kids race at the Lanzarote International Marathon which takes place on the 7th December 2013. To find out more information about this great race visit the Lanzarote International Marathon online.

Sands Beach Active would like to thank CEIP Costa Teguise for their hospitality and we look forward to cheering you all on at the Lanzarote International Marathon.
