This race brings back old memories of those years in which the carnival was prohibited and where the races were not for fun, but to avoid arrest by the night watchmen and the civil guard, in addition to the corresponding fine.

Once the race was over, the Carnival Palace served as a stage for the Our Lady of the Star Widows Association to distribute delicious chocolate and delicious cakes among the participants, and to regain strength to take part in the Zumba Fitnnes workshop given by “Nuria Sánchez”, who received a Carnival Mask for her involvement over the last few years.
