Madrid and London Marathons, the next steps on the international tour of La Ciudad del Running
Valencia Ciudad del Running is in the final stretch of its promotional tour, as we approach the end we visit two of the biggest Marathons in Europe: The London and Madrid Marathons. The runners’ fairs of both marathons attract thousands of visitors every year who are keen to keep up to date with marathon products, services and of course, different marathons around the world. La Ciudad del Running stand at the London Runners’ fair will be in a prime location with the objective of being one of the most visited stands, as it was at the Paris Marathon Runners’ Fair.
Over these last few weeks La Ciudad del Running has signed up a substantial amount of runners who want to run in the fastest races in Spain. Runners come to Valencia not just with the objective of smashing their PB but also for the fantastic weather. While most of Europe is turning to autumn with its grey skies, Valencia’s weather in October and November is like spring; perfect long distance running temperature. The half marathon takes place in October; the full marathon takes place in November. The clear blue skies mean that not only is it great for running, but it also means that the streets are full of spectators, live bands, entertainment and local flavor and passion. The organizers of the marathon encourage and plan most of the activities in and around the course, but a lot of the noise and singing comes from the unbridled joy of the supporters who line the streets every year.
If you would like to know more about ‘Ciudad del Running’ please come and see us at our stands at the London and Madrid Runners’ fairs. Our promotional team will be happy to answer any questions about the city and the races we offer, furthermore if you wish to book your race package (registration, flights, hotel) you can do so directly at the stands. The organizers of the marathon have negotiated with hotels and airlines to give you a much better price than if you book everything separately.
And…. Don’t forget! If you come and visit our stand the Runners’ fairs you can win a free place in the full Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon or in the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon. You just need to fill in a free prize draw slip and pop it in the box. The Wednesday after the runners’ fairs we will publish the winners on the official website.
Before we go, remember that we still have 2 stops left on our international tour. Our last two stops to promote the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon and Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon will be Stockholm and Mannheim (Germany). Sweden and Germany send more runners every year to La ciudad del Running Valencia, we welcome you with open arms and streets full of supporters.
