The Race in Manada It is specially designed to encourage the participation of diverse audiences, with a tour of 5 km and another option of 2 km, designed for the abilities of the little ones. The departure and arrival are located in the environment of BIOPARC and the route runs through sections of urban nature and the interior of the animal park. The objective for the runners, rather than winning, is to share moments of exercise with their “pack”, be it their family or group of friends, and also individually.
Registration for this solidarity test can be done on the BIOPARC website or in person at the sports center of the centers of El Corte Inglés (Nuevo Centro, Avenida de Francia and Pintor Sorolla) and all participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. The registration period ends on Thursday, November 20.
This year, like the previous edition, the benefits of the Race in Manada will be allocated through the BIOPARC Foundation to the project «HostA Little Bird». This initiative is that volunteers with and without functional diversity take care of young orphaned birds that have fallen from the nest, to release them, already restored, after a few weeks. The birds previously pass through the Wildlife Recovery Center “La Granja” in El Saler where a veterinary assessment is carried out before being assigned to the volunteers.
It is intended to make visible the benefits of animal assisted therapies directed towards the social and therapeutic volunteering of people with functional diversity and in a situation of social exclusion. In this case, it combines assisted therapy with animals and nature conservation through the care of orphaned birds.
The test will take place at nine in the morning of Sunday, November 24 in the park of Cabecera, under the bridge of BIOPARC and the old channel of the river Turia will be crossed until the athletics stadium, from where it will return towards the interior of BIOPARC. In the park you will pass through the Amphitheater and the central boulevard, with views towards Madagascar and Sabana, ending in the outer square of BIOPARC Valencia, where you will find the goal arch next to the sculpture of the Scipio elephant.
