The half marathon of Siero is consolidated in its thirty-first anniversary, looking for record participation figures. At the moment, there are 175 registered and the corridor registry will still remain open until February 27, two days before the test is held, on March 1.
It will be then when the test takes place from the Plaza de Abastos de Pola de Siero. More than two hundred people are expected to take part in the ten categories into which the test is divided.
Before, on February 29, participants must pick up the chip, from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Leandro Dominguez sports center in the capital of Poland. The price of registration is 12 euros for those not paid to the Municipal Sports Board and 7 for those who are members. The start of the test is scheduled for 10.30 on Sunday, March 1 and the goal will be closed at 13.00. Fifteen minutes later, the trophies will be delivered to the same location.
The prizes for this edition are 200 euros for the absolute champions in male and female categories; of 125 for the runners-up, 100 for the third classified and first sierenses and, finally, 150 for those who can set a new time record in the test.
The test is divided into ten categories. Specifically, sub-20, sub-23, master’s degrees (divided every five years into levels up to sixty years) and the special category.
The regulations of the competition indicate that only ten athletes from other regional federations that are not Asturian may participate. Likewise, four supplies are planned at various kilometers of the race and six hares will be available to help athletes reach the pre-set marks between 1.30 and 1.50.
The sports offer will be complemented with gastronomic. On the day of the test a series of menus will be offered, at a cost of 18 euros, in seven establishments in Pola de Siero and one in Lugones.
This will be the first athletic event held in Siero after the Lugones duathlon, in which a fatal accident caused several injuries and forced the suspension of the male test, due to lack of ambulances, busy transferring those affected to the Oviedo hospital.
