A 10% discount on all Renfe tickets to travel to the Valencia Half Marathon and Marathon
Travelling at full speed to Valencia to run the Valencia Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP or Marathon will be easier again this year thanks to the agreement reached by the race organisers with Renfe, which offers a 10% discount for runners and their companions.
Renfe will activate this promotional discount for the events on tickets purchased to travel to Valencia Ciudad del Running between 20 and 26 October, in the case of half marathon participants, and to travel from 1st to 7th December, for all marathon runners.
This 10% discount will be activated for any of the available fares (Basic, Elige and Premium) of all AVE and long distance services (AVE, Alvia, Euromed and Intercity) with destination Valencia, in all available timetables during those dates and it is valid for runners already registered in the race and their companions.
To benefit from them, runners must apply for it through the Valencia City of Running Self-management Zone which, after checking their registration, will send the “Discount Authorisation” by e-mail so that it can be used. This discount authorisation must be carried on the journey together with the ticket.
