Valencia, land of records
That Valencia is a city made for running is not simply something we Valencians like to say, it is also backed up by its topography, its climate, its dozens of clubs and by the thousands of runners practicing the sport in the city, but it is also backed up by its sporting results.
Its races, at any distance, are among the best in the world and it has seen nine world records being set, seven on the road and two on the track. And we think there is more to come, because Valencia is, without a doubt, the land of records. Of World Records.
