Presentation of the Valencia Half-Marathon

Athletes and amateur runners, spurred on by those in over 30 support tents, 600 volunteers and Valencia’s public, will strive to make their dreams come true. The City of Valencia will see history in the making as each step and kilometre brings runners closer to their final reward.

The Valencia Half-Marathon wishes to celebrate all these sagas of effort and achievement. That is why we have decided to make Spain’s best Half-Marathon on Sunday the 22nd of October unforgettable. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal for the trial in recognistion of their preparation and success in completing the 21,097.5 metres in Spain’s fastest Half-Marathon circuit.
