Ocean Lava 2011- Miles Of Smiles

The second running of the Ocean Lava triathlon took place over the weekend, and it was a privilege for Jules and I to be both competitors and to help out with some of the organisation.

Putting on the race is a logistical feat that only someone of Kenneth Gasque’s standing in the community here could contemplate. Liaising with each of the town halls the race runs through, organising road closures and police support – the list goes on and on. Of course it’s not all Kenneth. He’s the figurehead of an incredible team of  individuals – his family and friends – who just seem to make everything happen, and who once again managed to make sure everyone had a safe and fun filled day.

Lanzarote has been through some tough times over the last few years, thanks to the world wide recession, and the value of events like this shouldn’t be under estimated. Hundreds of athletes flew in from all over the world with their families, to spend the day swimming, running and cycling around the island. Both before and after the event, I saw them everywhere, spending money in shops, bars and restaurants and bringing with them that aura of positive thinking that sports people seem to generate.  read more »

Lanzarote Football, Villa Santa Brígada 1 Lanzarote 0

2nd October 2011

Two successive away matches and two successive defeats. Things are not going to plan for one of the favourites to challenge for the league title. Not only was it the worst performance of the season against a side without a win but the Rojillos ended the match with only nine players following two red cards.
