Valentín Brick Throwing World Championship returns

On June 25, the 4th Brick Throwing World Championship of Valentín is celebrated, a unique championship where the main objective is the entertainment of those who participate and the solidarity, without forgetting that one can be World Champion without being a great sportsman. The Brick Throwing World Championship of Valentín will take place as usual in the Church’s square of the Calasparra and Cehegín parish, from 12:00 hours. This will have a charitable character since the earnings from the inscriptions will be destined to the Conquistando Escalones Association, which is funding with own resources the investigation of the Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy LGMD1f. Organized by the FILVA and Conquistando Escalones Association, last year it gathered more than 200 participants, who threw massive bricks manufactured in a traditional way in Valentín, which have a weight of 750 grams that the adults throw and 375 the ones released for the minors. This championship allows everyone who wants to participate, divided into categories from the smallest and without age limit, in which women and men can participate.

The pitchers have two throws, in which they have some rules at the time of throwing it, such as that they cannot take off the feet of the bricks where the thrower has to be placed or the arm of the launcher cannot move behind the body.

Entries will be made half an hour before starting the Championship and the cost of the same will be 1 euro for those under 16 years and 3 euros for the rest. During the Championship, all the older players will be given free beer, which is given away by Estrella de Levante, who is the official sponsor of this unique Championship. (Responsible consumption is recommended). In addition we will have live DJ live music and raffles among all the attendees. From the organization, we would like to thank all the contributors for this event’s support.
