Call­ing all mini-sprint­ers: Sports and fun for kids at Dé­nia Ma­rina

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - LOCAL SPORT - By Saman­tha Kett

Kids who need to burn off some ex­cess en­ergy will have a ball at Dé­nia's an­nual MiniSprint – now in its sec­ond year and packed with fun stuff to keep the lit­tle ones en­ter­tained all af­ter­noon.

Run­ning races for chil­dren aged 12 and un­der – with no min­i­mum, so even tod­dlers can join in – are free of charge to en­ter and dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories mean com­pe­ti­tion is fair and en­joy­able.

In fact, it's not that com­pet­i­tive, re­ally – just enough to be ex­cit­ing: prizes are awarded to the first 200 past the fin­ish­ing line, which means prac­ti­cally every com­peti­tor will walk away with a sou­venir of their achieve­ment.

Free hot choco­late is given out to all kids tak­ing part, and a mix of other, non­sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties mean every child will find some­thing to do to keep them amused: craft work­shops where they can learn about build­ing and mak­ing stuff, and face and hand paint­ing will suit those with a cre­ative flair.

Young­sters will be un­der starters' orders from 16.00 on Satur­day, Jan­uary 19 at Dé­nia's El Portet Ma­rina.

En­ter­ing doesn't cost a cent, but adults should pre­reg­is­ter mini-par­tic­i­pants to avoid dis­ap­point­ment – they can do this via the web­site www.some­s­ up to noon on the day.
