A la Lona de Valencia (mental health project)
“A la Lona de Valencia” is a Project for helping those with severe mental illnesses to find work. Valencia’s City Centre Shopkeepers Association (ACCHV) came up with the idea and it was developed by CRIS Velluters and Asociación Rincón de Velluters — two entities helping mental patients on the path to functional recovery. The initiative involves a workshop where the street banners used to advertise the Valencia Marathon and Half-Marathon are donated by Fundación Trinidad Alfonso (foundation) so that they can be turned into designer handbags and other accessories. The final goal is to set up a special job centre for beneficiaries with the support of EULEN Sociosanitarios (health care group).

In doing so, BA SPORTS seeks to pioneer a new way of forging personal, sporting, and business relationships. The fair will feature discounts of up to 40% off Adidas and Mizuno footwear and textiles.

The course is not only scenic, it is also fast, giving runners an excellent opportunity to improve their times.

Generali Milano Marathon
The Generali Milano is Italy’s fastest marathon (Men’s record 2 hours 04'46'' / Women’s record 2 hours 22'25''). The race is on a flat, even circuit, with the Start and Finish at the same point in the centre of Milan. With only a 125-metre positive gradient and 3.1 kilometres of paving (which is very little for a city marathon!), the route lets runners admire the whole city, the sights in the historic centre such as the Duomo, Castello Sforzesco, and Teatro alla Scala, as well as modern, contemporary architecture (such as the Giuseppe Meazza/ San Siro stadium, and the new City Life district). Milan is a much greener city than you might think! Between kilometres 23 and 25, the circuit skirts the Parco di Trenno (park), then, at Kilometre 32, it crosses the enchanting Parco del Portello (park), before ending in a long stretch in the Parco Sempione (park).

The Ljubljana Marathon is the biggest running event held in Slovenia. Its great international reputation owes much to its postcard-pretty course, which runs through the streets of Ljubljana. The two main races — a marathon (42km) and a half marathon (21km) — are accompanied by recreational runs of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty: a 10km race; a 4km fun-run; a children’s run; a half-marathon hand-cycling race. This means there is something for runners of all ages and fitness levels. The Ljubljana Marathon was founded in 1996. It attracts a huge number of runners to the streets of Ljubljana in late October each year and it continues to grow in popularity. In the beginning, it mainly catered to local runners but it soon grew into an internationally-recognised competition. In 2019, all its races brought together over 20,000 runners drawn from 60 countries.
