Every year the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon chooses a good cause to become the beneficiary of the charitable fund launched by the race. The array of contributions helps to build the event and to focus the fund-raising efforts of the runners and the organization itself. These donations reinforce the social aspect of the MVTA, and they make a real difference in the lives of those in need.

The charity chosen by the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon in 2016 is ANAR Foundation. ANAR’s main aim is to provide support to children and teenagers at risk.

Donating €1 to a charity for every runner who crosses the finish line is the most noticeable initiative undertaken by the organizers of the Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon and it is also the one that best defines its character. This initiative was launched by the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation, the event’s main sponsor. The Foundation has committed to make a donation to the charity for every runner who finishes the 42,195 metre race.

However, this is only one of the many initiatives supported by the organizers to help those in need. All the money collected is donated to the charity once the event is over.


The Trinidad Alfonso Foundation would specially like to thank all runners for their effort and commitment to leave the city free of waste after having enjoyed a race with a huge crowd of both runners and spectators. This is why the so-named ‘Recycle your effort’ initiative will be launched again. There will be two waste disposal points near the refreshment stands and the finish line, which have been strategically located to collect plastic containers and organic waste.


The Paella Party will be held in the surrounding area of Expo Deporte, in the City of Arts and Sciences. When you show your bib number, you will receive a picnic with paella, bread, a drink and a piece of fruit. Enjoy it with your friends and family while you check all the parallel activities that will take place on Saturday the 19th of November. Paella party will start at 1:00 and finish at 3:30 pm. All runners will receive a free ‘paella picnic’, which can be collected in the green area surrounding the Principe Felipe Museum by showing the ticket that was given to them when collecting the bib number. Those who will not take part in the Marathon can also get their ticket in the venue at the price of €5. In addition, live cooking shows will be held in the Paella Party so that everyone becomes familiar with the superb Valencian cuisine and rice, which is its main ingredient.


For security reasons, people pushing prams or with kids, either in their arms or taken by the hand, are not allowed in the finish area. Likewise, runners will not be allowed to cross the finish line if they do not have their official bib number.

The race judges will disqualify any runner who:

  • Does not comply with the race official regulations.
  • Does not run over all of the antenna mats that will be placed along the circuit.
  • Has manipulated or does not wear their bib number or chip somewhere visible.
  • Has altered their identification details.

Likewise, the organization reserves the right to prevent these runners from registering for any future events organized by the entity as well as directly organized by the FDM in Valencia in case of repeated bad faith actions which represent a threat to sports principles.

Any runner who arrives at kilometre 25 after 12:45 pm on the 20th of November 2016 must leave the race and/or take the support car for exceeding more than 15 minutes the limit set by the organization to complete the race (6 hours).

Please, if you have registered for the race, do not give your bib number to someone else unless you have previously contacted the organization within the time limit established in the regulations, since this poses insurance problems and alters the race results.
