      The new normal is going to take another step in the world of sports this Sunday. On Lloret de Mar (Gerona), the first race in Spain with only competitors who prove that they have already been vaccinated against covid-19. The experience of Lloretrail tries to guarantee the best biosanitary security measures to avoid coronavirus infections after a year of pandemic.

      The organization (Sansi) has offered two different careers. On the one hand, a 13-kilometer mountain race. On the other, a more explosive 5,000 meters. Both will start in Lloret de Mar, where more than 1,000 runners from 17 countries will compete. Those responsible for Lloretrail, which is celebrating its second edition, have created the label “vaccinate“, a condition that allows a running license to be carried once vaccination has been proven.

      We have to adapt, in the not too distant future, cards of this type will be mandatory to participate in massive events. From the Sansi we already go ahead, and our runners will be the first to have their vaccination card, hoping that in a few months the percentage of vaccination will have been very high to be able to do even more massive events “, he explained Jose Luis Blanco, president of the Sansi. “In a few months, the race starts will be differentiated between vaccinated and unvaccinated, without excluding anyone, but apart from being even more sanitary, it will be a way to relaunch events, and not just sports”, he justified.

      However, other health protocols will be maintained to maximize measures to stop the spread of the virus. “The masks, gels, temperature taking and greater distancing will be in the events for longer“recalled the organizers.
