More than three hundred athletes were present at the second edition of Arena Beach Run, the fifth and final event of the Foz Plaza Figueira Beach Games program, a program promoted by the Figueirense municipality for the promotion of beach sports in the county.
Marked by a strong ecological aspect, especially in eco-walking, in which the participants were collecting garbage that they came across on the beach (which, incidentally, was transversal to all the events of this programming), this turned out to be a sporting afternoon of high quality, with two races of five and ten kilometers, in which the effort of running in the sand pushed the participants to the limit.
Foz Plaza Figueira Beach Games are part of Figueira Beach Sports City, a project promoted by the municipality of Figueira da Foz, which aims to develop innovative products and services in the area of beach sports.
Thousands of people attended the Foz Plaza Figueira Smash Fest, which took place from Friday to Sunday in the sports area of Buarcos, in Figueira da Foz.
Full Stands, good vibes and high quality beach volleyball made this event another great success.
The duos Leão / Oliveira (male) and Antunes / Oliveira (female) won the Figueira da Foz stage of the national beach volleyball circuit.
In the Figueira Smash Cup, were won (in men) the Tubarões do Liz, while in women the victory smiled to the team of Petekas.
This event, integrated in the Foz Plaza Figueira Beach Games, was characterized by three days of mild temperatures (far from the torrid heat that was felt in the 2018 edition) and had three events simultaneously: a stage of the Circuit National Senior Male and Female Championship (the penultimate of the championship, which will end in Porto), Gira Praia Circuit (under 14, under 16 and under 18) and also the Foz Plaza Smash Cup 4×4, which featured the categories male, female and Masters totaling more than half a thousand athletes.
