We can't promise you Dick Dastardly and Penelope Pitstop

We can't promise you Dick Dastardly and Penelope Pitstop but if you head on down to Playa den Bossa on Friday there'll be just as much fun as the cartoon series.

Well, maybe not, because a four kilometre sand race is taking place starting at 19.30 h by the Hotel Algarb. Competitors will run down the beach to the Sal Rossa tower and then back again.

It's a punishing run and as the organisers have confirmed, 'it's a short distance, but running on sand is much more tiring than on ordinary ground.'

If they think that's difficult they should try pushing a pram up the beach carrying two big bags full of Fanta Orange and family packs of crisps!
