The Valencia Marathon supports top athletes once again this year with its MyBest42 programme

3 March, 2020

The Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP, held by SD Correcaminos (running club) and Valencia City Council, is again launching its sport improvement programme this year to draw the world’s top athletes. The programme is now called ‘MyBest42’ (it was formerly the ‘Personal Best’ programme).

The ‘MyBest42’ programme is open to any athlete with a time under: 2 hours 20:00 in the Marathon; 1 hour 06:00 in the Half-Marathon; 30:15 in the 10km Race in the Men’s category. In the Women’s category, the time must be under: 2 hours 45:00; 1 hour 17:00; 35:30, respectively.

The Organisers will not accept runners who have been banned for an infraction considered by World Athletics, WADA, or AESPAD as grave or very grave, regardless of when the ban was imposed or whether the ban has now expired.

Once the application has been accepted, athletes will benefit from services such as: the elite race bib; transfers; massages; special refreshments; relaxation and psychological preparation activities; technical meetings, and other enhancements for the race on the 6th of December 2020.

In the last edition of the Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP, no fewer than 64 athletes drawn from 20 nations took part in the programme to beat their best times. Of these, 17 received prizes in the Men’s category and 10 in the Women’s category. The prizes totalled €67,000. Spain and The United Kingdom were the nations that won most prizes (7), followed by France and Sweden (2).

Those athletes wishing to join this programme should send an e-mail to mybest42@maratonvalencia.com between the 1st of March and the 31st of April 2020.
