The organisers will notify runners when the last 1,000 race bibs are put on sale.
The only details that the Organisers will take into account in the classifications in whatever category will be those provided by each runner on his or her entry form.
Runners entering before 30/06 are guaranteed their chosen shirt size. From 30/06 onwards, the choice of shirt sizes will depend on what is left in stock. The stock and information on sizes will be provided on entry. Use the following link for information on sizes
6.2 Club entries
To be eligible in the team category, in addition to each runner filling in his or her entry form, a team entry form must also be filled out — see HERE , listing the runners making up the team and the team’s club manager. The team form must be submitted before the 30th of October 2019.
6.3 Entries by handicapped runners:
All handicapped runners falling within one of the 4 special categories will be given a 50% discount on the entry price, bearing in mind the dates and prices given above
To compete in one of the four special categories (wheelchair, functionally handicapped, sensorially handicapped, mentally handicapped), the entry must be made through FESA (Federación de Deportes Adaptados de la Comunidad Valenciana) [Valencia Federation for Special Sports Categories], whose contact e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org, and whose telephone number is (+34) 963 465 726. FESA has the expertise, knowledge and experience to ensure handicapped sportsmen and sportswomen are placed in the right categories.
All athletes who, for any reason, cannot make their entries through FESA, will not be classified in any of the four special categories for handicapped participants and will not be eligible for a discount
Each blind or visually impaired athlete (B2) who so requires shall be entitled to be accompanied by a guide whose entry will be completely free. Such entry may only be made through FESA. Only one guide can be allocated to each blind or visually impaired athlete.
6.4 Entries are made through the official web site https://tickets.valenciaciudaddelrunning.com/ (Providing there are still running bibs available).
The web site https://tickets.valenciaciudaddelrunning.com/ managed by S.D. Correcaminos (running club) — SDC — is the sole official online distributor authorised to make entries for the trial. We therefore strongly urge you not to attempt to enter for the trial and/or acquire running bibs on web sites other than the official one.
The organisers shall not be liable for entries made through Third Parties. SDC thus makes no warranties as to the reliability, veracity, or suitability of entries made through Third Parties and has no obligations to furnish information on the availability of entries, stocks, and/or prices in this connection.
No rights are recognised in connection with guarantees, cancellations, and changes covered in these Terms and Conditions should the entries be unofficial and/or not have been obtained through SDC and/or this web platform https://tickets.valenciaciudaddelrunning.com/.
The foregoing provisions are without prejudice to the entries made through official tour operators and that are included in package holidays. In any event, such tour operators will redirect users to this, the web site of the authorised distributor, to make the entries.
Article 7: Changing the runner’s name
The option of changing the runner’s name or bib/chip through our entry web site can be found in the section titled “Request change of runner”.Terms:
- The deadline for making such requests is the 1st of November 2019,
- Once the runner has requested the change of name, there is a period of 3 days to complete the new entry.
- Fee: €5, which will be paid by the new runner.
The Organisers reserve the right to modify the method for making runner changes.
For legal and sport reasons, especially those concerning security, runners are strictly forbidden to sell/lend/give their bibs to other runners unless they first obtain written permission to do so from the Organisers.
Should the Organisers learn of such infractions before the race, they will cancel the race bib involved, rendering it invalid for the competition. Unknown persons taking part in the race both threaten safety and distort the classifications. Accordingly, the Organisers will note the details of anyone making their bibs available to others and ban them from entering trials in the following 4 years. The Organisers will also inform bodies holding other marathons, half-marathons, and 10-kilometre races of the irregularities committed. In the case of athletes who are members of the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation (RFEA) and the Valencian Athletics Federation (FACV), these bodies will also be informed of said infractions so that appropriate measures can be taken.
The Organisers reserve the right to: (1) prevent the future entry of those athletes who are disqualified because they failed to fully complete the 42,195 metres of the course; (2) take legal action against those infringing the regulations set out in this document.
Article 8: Injury
A refund of the entry fee can be requested in the event of injury. Medical certification is required in such cases. The request can be made on our entry web site under the section “Request withdrawal due to injury”.
- The entry fee will be refunded in full in the event of injury or illness providing the runner submits a medical certificate with the corresponding diagnosis.
- The deadline for making an application for a refund and submitting the requisite medical certificate is the 1st of November 2019, after which no application will be accepted.
- The refund will be made through the same payment method used to make the entry (payment by debit/credit card or bank transfer) as soon as the medical documentation has been verified.
Runners can take out a Comprehensive Refund Insurance Policy which guarantees an 80% refund of the entry fee and any contracted extras. In this case, no medical certificate is required to obtain a refund.
9.1 Our web site incorporates checks to avoid mistakes such as duplicate entries for a given race. In the event of duplicate entries, the earlier entry will be cancelled and a refund made. A fee of €5 will be applied to cover the costs entailed in managing duplicate entries.
9.2 The refund of an entry made with the ‘Regala’ (‘give a present’) product will be made electronically in a Running Card (+ info), which the runner can use in whole or in part for future entries and/or the services provided by future editions of the Valencia Half-Marathon, the Valencia Marathon and/or the 10-kilometre Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Race.
Article 10: Bibs and chips
Bibs and chips will only be handed out at THE RUNNERS’ FAIR, which will be sited at the Science Museum (Museo Príncipe Felipe) in Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences. The Fair will run throughout the day from 8:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. on Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th of November 2019. The Organisers reserve the right to change the venue for THE RUNNERS’ FAIR, in which case they will give prior notice.

This pick-up point will be open from 7:00 to 8:00 A.M. (Note that an original National Identity Document or Passport must be shown)
