PARK TO PARK FITNESS WALK
The innovative format of the half-marathon taking place between the municipalities of Bacoli, Pozzuoli and Naples (starting from the Bacoli lakefront and finishing at Rotonda Diaz in via Caracciolo), includes several collateral events, such as the “Park to Park Camminata Sportiva (Fitness Walk).”
In fact, the ASD Naples Road Runners, always sensitive to health issues related to the world of sports, joins “Passo dopo passo”, a project under the responsibility of the local health board (ASL Napoli 2 Nord).
Walking is considered one of the easiest and most accessible physical activities, as well as very effective for health protection. When done regularly, this exercise helps reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Being not high-impact as running, it helps strengthen leg and hip muscles, improving bone density. Among other benefits, walking encourages people to exercise together and socialize, contributing to overall emotional well-being.
Health promotion therefore necessarily passes through the adoption of coordinated activities. In order to implement such synergies, the ASD Napoli Road Runners in cooperation with ASL Napoli 2 Nord, Federazione Italiana Camminatori Sportivi and ASP Fleg Workout, proposes a new narration of the places, landscapes, nature and history of Campi Flegrei.
Underlying the project is the desire to promote and introduce the Campi Flegrei area through dynamic routes, in which physical activity is combined with the voice of a trainer and a licensed tour guide, thus allowing even distant locations to be reached in a pleasant way. There will be also “tasting stops” to enjoy local specialties.
The use of wireless headphones, then, will make it possible to combine sports, music and knowledge of cultural, archaeological and natural heritage to experience and feel the territory as a common heritage.
The Walk is not a competition but exclusively a recreational-motor activity and those who run will be invited just to walk.
All participants must be at least 18 years old; minors must be accompanied or authorized by their parents. Spokesperson of the event will be the well-known musician and athlete who took part in the Ironman World Championship in Nice last month, Pino De Maio, as an active supporter of LILT, who will actually lead the walk. During the event, Pino De Maio himself will entertain participants with a musical performance.
