The Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon want to be the highlight of the Spanish marathon calendar. Under the blue skies of Valencia in November the city transforms into a celebration and carnival for runners and supporters.
One of the most awe inspiring sights of the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon is the sea of supporters that flock to the streets every year to enjoy and create the carnival atmosphere that pushes the runners on to get the fastest times of any marathon in Spain. For those that are not running to break records, the support, singing and live bands put the wind beneath your wings to keep you going and finish your 42.195 KM, and finish on one of the most spectacular finish lines in the world.
These are the main animations you can find along the trail:
