Zumba Fun in San Jose To Celebrate The Finish Of The VIII Trail Cabo De Gata-Nijar + Paellas Gigantes!

I have been attending the local Zumba classes in the San Jose Community Hall for a couple of weeks now and having a lot of fun with the local ladies. At the last class on Friday we were told to come down at 12.30 today, however as I don't speak very good Spanish yet I wasn't sure why.  It turns out it was to celebrate the finish of the VIII Trail Cabo de Gata!  A 29km trail (with a 4km trail for children) in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park finishing in the centre of San Jose.  It was a massive event with many people of all abilities smiling and celebrating as they crossed the line.  The post-celebration included a 45 minute Zumba session given by the incredibly bubble Rosa and another local instructor.  It was so much fun to be part of the occasion with children and adults of all ages dancing together in the sun.  There was also a very impressive jumbo Paella!!  See the pictures below.......


It's a shame we didn't know about the event soon as looking up the info online, we would have both loved to take part in the trail - well....good to know for future years!  If anyone is interested I found details of many local trails, cycle, triahtlon, marathon events on this site www.aqueatacamos.com

Feeling very grateful to have been unexpectedly part of this event in the wonderful San Jose where we have been staying these past 8 weeks.  There was an amazing atmosphere and energy within the crowd.  We will definitely keep our eyes on events like this for next year.... (maybe, hopefully we will be back again?!?)

Smiles and celebrations as people cross the finish line.....




Music and Zumba fun for all as part of the finish line celebrations ....... crank-up the music!







Look at me go ..... he he!


Everyone was very excited about the Jumbo Paella!!
