The test, to be held between the towns of Güines and San José de las Lajas, in the western province of Mayabeque, will also serve to celebrate on the same date and year the foundation of the Cuban Olympic Committee (COC), one of the 204 sports national organizations belonging to the movement under the five rings.
According to the digital portal Jit, the competition will start at 6:30 local time on August 13 from the Nelson Fernández sports center, located in San José de las Lajas.
This competition will be accessible to all regular national and foreign walkers who wish to attend and therefore have the incentive to grant classification bonuses to the Havana marathon.
According to the COC, in a world punished by wars, the sacred pact that turned Olympia in ancient Greece into an oasis of peace during the initial Olympic Games is reborn.
In this way, the Olympic spirit allowed the first international peace agreement to be signed: the Olympic Truce.
A transcendental agreement to offer the possibility until today of supporting the prevalence of peace and not war or armed conflict during the development of the summer games.
The National Commission for Races and Walks told Prensa Latina that the registration process for the half marathon will begin at the Fructuoso Rodríguez Agrarian University of Havana in San José de las Lajas, once the last bus arrives with walkers from the Sport City in the capital.
