DOWN 5K – Ururguay

March 17, 2019

This is a race organized for the 4th time in a row to celebrate WDSD. Participants buy tickets at ABITAB, a bil payment chain with offices all over the country. and get a t-shirt and runner number, though there’s no competition involved. Our motto is “cada uno a su ritmo” (each at their own pace), as in life. It’s rather a celebration in one of the largest parks of the city. After the race is over, and the last runner has arrived (two years ago, a young blind boy with his guide dog), and everyone has get his commemoration medal, a popular band starts music, with many – especially young people with DS, dancing with great energy. We have very faithful sponsors who help us organize and pay for the costs of all the event. The municipality provides a stage, audio system, etc. In the past two races, more than 3000 people gathered to celebrate.
