25 surprises to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon

24 September, 2015

The Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon will celebrate its 25th edition with energy and vigor. The race is held on the 18th of October but the party will start before that. There will be a series of events in the 25 days counting down to the race. 25 days to celebrate 25 years!

As the event has evolved over the years so have the ways of engaging with the event. Social media will play a key part for anyone interested in getting involved. The Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Half Marathon already has a very good social presence and we should see a spike in activity in the 25-day countdown. To keep track of everything we have created the hashtag: #MMValencia25

The first event will be the presentation of the shirt for runners. An extra special shirt as it will be the only one to ever feature the very special number 25. Luanvi, the shirt manufacturer, and the organizers have worked together to make sure the runners have a very special memento to take home and remind them of what will be one of the best half marathons in Europe this year. With this video you can get a sneak peek of the designs:

On social media we will be grooving on back to 1990 to relive some of the runners’ favorite tracks from the first year of the Valencian half Marathon. Everyday there will be a duel between two popular 1990’s tracks. The winning track from each day will be added to the playlist for the day of the marathon. To participate, vote on the track you like, and see how cheesy it gets please use: #MMValencia25 #remember.

To reflect the diversity of runners in the race, 25 runners have been interviewed. Every day one of their stories will be published. Be prepared to laugh, cry and be motivated by the effort, courage and craziness of the runners in the 25th Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon.

These are some of the things people can take part in, and share in over the 25 days leading up to the big day. There will also be many surprises throughout these 25 days; follow us with the hashtag #MMValencia25 if you want to be one of the first to hear about the treats we will be dishing out over the 25 days. Valencia is not only about the runners, it is a whole city project, the #MMValencia25 initiative is open to everybody, not just those with sneakers. Stay in touch with the Ciudad del Running and see you on the 18th.
