In addition, one should note that many kinds of help are given to charitable causes. The following are just some of the ways the Valencia-Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon gives charities a helping hand:
€1 for each runner reaching the Finishing Line
The donation of €1 for each Finisher made by Fundación Trinidad Alfonso rewards the efforts made by those competitors crossing the Finishing Line in Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences after completing Spain’s fastest 42,195-metre circuit. So each individual’s triumph is also a victory for society as a whole, helping the least fortunate to attain their dreams. Thus the charity in each edition — this year it is Save the Children — receives €1 for each runner who crosses the tape.
Valencia MAPFRE Mini-Marathon
This activity takes place in parallel with the main event. It caters to the youngest runners and has been held since 2014 to foster athletics from a tender age. The Mini-Marathon (which is supported by Fundación MAPFRE and the Municipal Board for Sport) boosts social involvement in the Valencia-Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon. Furthermore, the Mini-Marathon not only caters to youngsters, the entry fee for the race also includes a €2 contribution per head to the Official Charity.
The Valencia-Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon gives all runners the option of donating an extra €3, which will be wholly earmarked for this edition’s Official Charity.
