Bruzon meets Eurafrica Trail competitors
The Minister for Sport, Leslie Bruzon, was on hand to start the 8th edition of the Eurafrica Trail which commenced from Casemates Square on Friday.
The event saw participants navigate the Upper Rock via some iconic sites with spectacular views finished at O’Hara’s Battery.
Mr Bruzon also addressed all finishers and handed out prizes to those successful in their relevant categories.
The closing ceremony that was held in the spectacular setting of St Michael’s cave culminated the Gibraltar stage, the Visit Gibraltar Vertical Race.
Mr Bruzon was delighted with the event, and added: “Although having only recently started my tenure as Minister for Sport, the Eurafrica Trail is an event which I was aware of given its significance on many levels.”
“It is the only race of its kind that is held over three countries and two continents embracing the good relations in the area.”
“In addition, the organisers have a strong focus on sustainability and the environment that are crucial matters for our global future.”
“Well done to all who took part with particular mention to our local athletes.”
The event continues in Gaucin and Algeciras, crossing the Strait to Jebel Musa and Tetouan in Morocco in the next few days.
