Update 6 April: Nine men and one woman entered the race, starting at 10.30 on Sunday, with two laps of the course, a total distance of 3,000 metres. The wind blew the sand everywhere, it seems, making for a race that was difficult in more than one respect given the naked condition of the entrants! The winner was Frederic Jolly, with Derimán Ichazagua in second place, and Christian Vah Vymcki in third. Beatriz Penedo, the sole female competitor, came in in fifth place. The tourism councillor of Granadilla Ayuntamiento, Candelaria Rodríguez, and the chief of Grupo Hara, Jose Alberto Hernández, handed over the trophies and prizes. C24H
