OAFI was present at this important sporting event of the DIR Sports Clubs which brings together more than 10 000 runners and their children every year.

The Runner’s Fair opened its doors in the Piscines i Esports Park, next to Diagonal DIR, from May 25th-May 26th. Participants collected their shirts and numbers and visited OAFI’s stand, where they were informed about our specific programmes for sport and joint health: OAFI SPORT and OAFI SPORT CHILDREN.

The 5th DIR Kids Local Police Race was held on Saturday May 26th, with different categories for children up to 14 years of age. Children were able to enjoy a day practising sports with their families around the park near Diagonal DIR, while the races took place and the winners collected their medals.

The world champion and Olympic athlete, Chuso Garcia Bragado trained and coached the children on behalf of OAFI before each race to explain the importance of warming up to avoid injury and to always show respect for other competitors. Sport YES, injuries NO! is motto of OAFI Sport!

The event ended at OAFI’s stand with the draw for two Barcelona FC shirts, signed by seven star players from the Football Club Barcelona, including Messi. Congratulations to all the winners who became partners of OAFI and were able to participate in the draw!
