For sport and physical activity becoming a way of life at all ages
This project has been carried out for the Diputación de Pontevedra, to promote the image of the region. A hiking route to actively explore and get to know the most impressive places in the province of Pontevedra, getting to know the villages through their people, rivers and forests.
Seven hiking routes have been established, with a distance of between 4.5 and 7.5 miles for the routes planned for midday, and of 1.8 or 3.7 miles in the case of a route in the morning and another in the afternoon. Each route, where possible, was done in a circular way, and refreshment points were set up along each of the routes. An average of 300 people registered for each route and saw the participation of people, groups of friends, families, of all ages. A cheerful atmosphere where everyone has been able to enjoy their free time doing physical activity in company and immersed in nature.
As it was planned, at Sportmadness we have been able to satisfy the requests of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, creating an alternative way to improve the physical condition and the employment of the users' free time. The participants have given positive feedback from the event, happy to have discovered and enjoyed the beauties of the region in a different way. Thus, many have asked for new routes and during more months of the year.
