EDP will be energizing the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon
The Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon can count on the support of one of the biggest energy suppliers on the Iberian Peninsula for the 2016 race. Under the banner “Official energy of the Marathon”, EDP is yet another major contributor to the culture of effort and drive that is emblematic of La Ciudad del Running, Valencia.
The agreement between EDP and the marathon means that EDP will take a major role in the promotion of the race, featuring in the naming rights of the event also. EDP is a huge sponsor and further proof that the Valencia Marathon is a major player in the international running calendar in terms of quality, course, running experience and visibility for sponsors. The glut of major sponsors, increase year on year in registrations and the recent award of the IAAF Gold Label make Valencia one of the running capitals of Europe.
Marathoners can convert their effort to Kilowatts
The inclusion of EDP as a sponsor means a very innovative approach to rewarding runners for their physical effort. Runners can opt to receive 210 kWh for the average minutes taken to finish the marathon. Runners who take part in the promotion will receive their energy as a 100% renewable contribution of energy from EDP. The energy can be used in homes or at business locations.
This energy promotion shared by EDP and the runners of the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon is open for current EDP customers and new customers who would like to join EDP. As a further bonus, EDP will refund runners their registration fee for the marathon when they sign up their energy bills with EDP. If that’s not enough, EDP will also be holding a prize draw and giving away free race registrations for their current customers.
9,000 already signed up
The Valencia Marathon, organized by SD Correcaminos Athletics Club and the Valencia Government, continues growing exponentially in every way. More big sponsors are signing up every year, media coverage has gone through the roof, and, this year the event has broken all registration records set by the record busting 2015 edition. Numbers are 31% up on this time last year. Of the 9,000 registered runners so far, 1,300 are women and a whopping 2,600 are runners from outside of Spain.
