MSC continues as a sponsor of the Valencia Half and Marathon
19 July, 2023
The Valencia Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso Zurich and the Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso will once again have MSC as a sponsor of both races. After its participation last year, the world’s leading company in the logistics and transport sector, which has been linked to the city of Valencia for more than 40 years, is continuing its commitment to the races and also to the youngest runners, by once again supporting the MSC Valencia Mini Marathon. This year, in addition, MSC will sponsor the ‘rabbits’ in both events as part of an initiative that comes almost naturally to it, as it is a tradition and unique in Valencian races that the pacemakers are called “prácticos” or pilots. This name comes from the idiosyncrasy of a city that has always been linked to the sea, because in maritime language, ‘pilots’ are captains who go on board ships when they are about to reach port and help them to successfully complete their journey, in the same way that the ‘pilots’ or pacemakers in road races help runners to cross the finish line in the desired time. Thus, in 2023, the ‘rabbits’ in the Valencia Half and Marathon will officially be Prácticos MSC.
