The 40 runners that make up the Athletics Academy, faced more than 100 runners from the different districts of the capital, who were invited by the municipality to the friendly day.

The athletics instructor Josué Valerio, stated that, two years after starting to prepare young people and children who like this discipline, the achievements are great.

"Since the academy opened, in such a short time, in two years we have made the grade, we have been attracting many young people and children who to this day have stood out with victories in departmental, national and even Central American championships," Valerio commented.

Also, he highlighted that the runners have been constant and in the two training shifts that the academy has there is good attendance, "guaranteeing access to sport is already paying off, children and young people who are interested in practicing a sport today have opportunities and conditions that they did not have before, I think that in athletics they discover their capacities and physical qualities that they get to enhance if they are interested in training ”.

The 9-year-old Rose Martínez girl, currently in the fourth grade of primary school at the Sacred Heart of Jesus School, is originally from District II and for her running is a very beautiful and fun experience, in addition to allowing her to create a discipline to grow healthy.
