Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon and Half Marathon sell out first 1,000 promotional tickets in less than an hour
The Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon and Half Marathon, organized by SD Correcaminos and the Valencia Government, continues to break records. Alongside being the fastest Half Marathon course in Spain and one of the quickest in the world, the event is also one of the quickest selling. The first 1,000 tickets for both race races sold out quicker than ever before.
The Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon was the first to cross the line and sell out its thousand promotional race numbers in only 52 minutes. Even in the first 1,000 registrations there is a variety of runners from around the world. 2015 was the most international Valencia Marathon in history with 25% of runners coming from outside of Spain, 2016 should be even more international. Valencia has worked hard to attract foreign runners and has dedicated a lot of its resources to this; 365 days a year English speaking runners help line, discounts with airlines and hotels. However, this is only part of the reason that foreign runners come, the blue skies, flat course and 15-19Cº weather are just as attractive.
The Half Marathon, as always, keeps up with its big brother. The fastest half marathon on the planet sold out its first 1,000 race numbers in 59 minutes. This is not surprising as Valencia has been the fastest Half Marathon in the world for the last 2 years. Both the Marathon and Half Marathon were awarded IAAF Gold Label Status last year.
