Chiki, Abadía and Mayo, fire duel in 2000 in Valencia
They are three of our best long distance runners of the moment. All outstanding students of the great Pepe Mareca, with whom we had the pleasure of speaking recently in the Stock Exchange of the Corridor and who takes with an astonishing naturalness to direct a cast of national stars that removes the hiccups. Toni Abadia, Carlos Mayo and Chiki Pérez, who have been training hard since last May 2 they will begin to allow us to do outdoor sports on the street (and during confinement, obviously, but the gradual resumption of their 'normal' sessions started that day), will be measured in Valencia at a distance unusual for any of them, a 2,000.
A challenge with many incentives
The challenge, promoted by ‘Valencia Ciudad del Runnin’ and the club ár Cárnicas Serrano ’, will take place next Friday, June 26 from 9:00 p.m. on the slopes of the Turia Stadium From Valencia. Without a doubt, another sample of the will of all so that the competitions are gradually returning to our lives. It should be emphasized that it is not the first challenge that arises of this nature, since Adri Ben and Óscar Husillos already announced a few weeks ago that they will face each other in July in the so-called 'Challenge 500' (we will see when it can end up fighting over the Galician injury, which must remain five weeks without running).
With hare and at a rate of 2: 37 / km
Abadía is preparing for the marathon (possibly debuting next December precisely in Valencia if conditions allow it), while Carlos and Chiki are exercising in their native Zaragoza and Ciudad Real, despite the fact that the Castilian-Manchego has already been in Valencia for few days. The athletes they will have the help of a hare who will launch the race the first 600 meters to mark an approximate rate of 2 minutes and 37 seconds per kilometer. In addition, the test will have the necessary security measures to guarantee the health of the athletes who will undergo a PCR test 36 hours before the competition. Access to the athletics track will be limited, it will be done by prior invitation and respecting the safety distance between attendees.
