As announced a few weeks ago during the presentation of the Maratón Gran Canaria ’20 LaLigaSports in the press room of the Gran Canaria Arena, all the “subscribers” and “fans” of UD Las Palmas will have a 50% and 25% discount respectively in the Maratón Gran Canaria ’20. Unión Deportiva will collaborate through its Foundation in an event that will be included in the functions that will commemorate the 70 years of history of the club. Furthermore, an iconic player of the first team will sponsor the Young Race, which will take place on Friday, May 22, 2020.
During the presentation, the managing director, Josep Guardiola, expressed his gratitude to the people of the island for the enthusiastic welcome and revealed two novelties. The Young Race, on Friday, May 22, addressed to teenagers, and the Abuel@ton, for the elder people. UD Las Palmas’ president, Miguel Ángel Ramírez, announced that his club will endorse the Young Race which will receive the support of a player from the first team.
However, the host team’s involvement does not end here. Its president also assured that the club will “actively participate and support the initiative from the Foundation, in the context of the events for the 70th anniversary”. The strong relationships between both parts will benefit the “subscribers” and “fans” of UD Las Palmas, who will enjoy a 50% and a 25% discount on the registration in any of the three modalities of the race: individual Marathon, relay marathon (as long as one of the team runners is a member or a fan) and individual Half-marathon.
