As in previous editions, Ecopilas will once again join us in the 1/2 Marathon of Formentera spreading its commitment to the collection of batteries and will have a detail with all those who on the day of the race deposit used batteries in the stand located next to the bib number pickup tent, located at the finish line in La Savina.
In addition, in collaboration with the Consell de Formentera and the Govern de les Illes Balears, an activity will also be carried out in the schools of the island to raise awareness among the youngsters about the importance of recycling a highly polluting material.
Ecopilas will also give a suitcase to the winners (male and female) of both the Half Marathon and the 8km race.
SOLIDARITY WILL NOT BE MISSING TO ACHIEVE A FAIRER AND MORE EQUAL SOCIETY
The Department of Sports of the Consell and the NGO Wanawake Mujer come together to give color and claim equality, at the celebration of this fantastic event.
