Girona prepares an interactive challenge for the Sant Silvestre race

15/12/16 | On 31 December the 12th edition of the Girona Sant Silvestre race will take place and, for children, there will also be the Mini Sant Silvestre. As a warm-up for this event a sporting challenge open to all has been organised.

The Girona Sports Tourism Destination (DTE) has joined the Costa Brava Pirineus Sports Friendly platform, whose goal is to promote sports events in the province of Girona through challenges that encourage an active and dynamic lifestyle. This year, taking advantage of the Sant Silvestre race on 31 December, Girona City Council has collaborated in the organisation of a new sporting challenge.

The challenge is managed through the mobile application WeFitter, which proposes different sporting objectives in which users must reach a specific number of points, kilometres covered or calories burnt. Anyone can take part in these challenges and, if they reach their goal, they can obtain discounts or win prizes.

In the case of the Girona Sant Silvestre, the goal is to obtain 400 points by running or walking. Everyone who completes the challenge and reaches a total of 400 points will obtain a discount code to spend a night in a hotel that holds the DTE Girona seal, awarded by the Catalan Tourism Agency. In addition to the discount on accommodation, all those who successfully complete this challenge will be entered into a prize draw to win a meal for two people in different restaurants in the city.
