Pous Perez prevails in Pedreguer

On the 15th May the sixth race in the Marina Alta series was contested in Pedreguer in what was a very well supported race run in perfect conditions.

As usual there were some superb performances from the usual suspects. Geoff was first home in the men's vets c category in the superb time of 42:06, over three minutes clear of his next rival.

Fast improving John, seemingly coming back to his top form managed 14th place in his category in 53:08.

It was a podium one two from former striders Amanda (46:03) and Louise (45:04) in the women's vets b category.

Other striders managed very creditable times; Tom (36:23), Brian (49:28), Ron (56:38), Sole (59:04) and Carol (59:47).

Last but not least, in a finish that was reminiscent of Beardsley's and Simonson's iconic finish in the inaugural London marathon, Des and "El Presidente" finished the race hand in hand together in (1:01:32) and (1:01:13) respectively.

In a very close finish in the men's race the overall win went to Juanra Pous Perez of C.A Franc Beneyto R. Denia in 33:36, who narrowly edged out Mounir Horma, also credited with the same time, and third place going to Vicent Mas Leyda of C.A Dianium in 34:11. Patricia Lopez Vicedo was first home for the women in a time of 40:28, followed by Maria Isabel Ferrer Castell (41:19) and Inge Van Den Broeck in third with 41:54.


  1. Hi there, just wondering if there are any running shops around Moraira?

    I will be holidaying next week, and am mid-training for Berlin, Dublin and New York marathons over the next few months, so hope to get some running (and shopping!) done during my break. Thanks for the route links. Will definitely give them a go next week.

  2. Gary,

    Sorry for the late reply, only just read this. Unfortunately there are no specific running shops in Moraira although there is a very good 'Decathlon' store with everything you could want 45-50 mins away in Alicante. Hope this helps. Enjoy your holiday and feel free to join us on our club runs (Tue and Sat at 08:15 in main car park in Moraira)
