 Organisers of a sponsored marathon walk along the Via Verde ''Greenway'' aim to make it an annual fundraising event.The 43.5km or 27mile trek will raise much-needed funds to purchase equipment for a New Youth Club in the village.

 On April 28th the group of local residents and holiday home owners of the village will don their sturdy shoes and boots and set off from Puerto Serrano, Cadiz along the Via Verde and are expected to arrive eight hours later at the village of Pruna in Seville. They will pass through some of the most spectacular scenery in Andalucia including the Penon de Zaframagon nature reserve, home to the impressive community of Griffin Vultures. The route also goes over four viaducts and through as many as 30 tunnels, one of which is 1km long.

 The walkers will all wear themed t-shirts and caps for the duration of the marathon walk thanks to support from the Via Verde Association who will also provide a number of refreshment stations, placed every 8km to sustain the walkers along the route and where necessary provide medical support to prevent dehydration and blisters.

 The town hall in Pruna are also right behind the venture providing Coach transfers for walkers to the start at Puerto Serrano Station from Pruna, and returning at the end. Fransisco Lopez Sanchez, Mayor has pledged the funds raised through sponsorship will be used to buy much needed equipment for the New Pruna Youth Club.

 David Sharp, a resident of the village, said: “There is a lot of support from local community, as well as the official bodies. We are confident it will be a great success and help put the Via Verde , and the towns of Pruna, Puerto Serrano, Coripe and Olvera firmly on the tourist map. I have no doubt this will become an annual event raising much needed funds for local good causes.”


There is still time for walkers and sponsors to sign up and support the event. There is a €5 fee to join the walk which this year will be donated to the New Pruna Youth Club.
