The Valencia Half Marathon donates 11,768 euros to AFAV

23 October, 2016

The Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon, organized by SD Correcaminos in collaboration with the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation, wishes to praise the effort that runners have made in the race and while training for the Valencia Half Marathon, which has been awarded the IAAF Road Race Gold Label.

For each and one of the participants who cross the finish line, the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation, the race’s main sponsor, and the organizers will donate €1 to the charity chosen this year by the Half Marathon, the Alzheimer Family Association of Valencia (AFAV). From Stephen Kosgei Kibet, the race winner, to Elisa Cruz García, the last runner to cross the finish line, a total of 11,768 runners will be part of this initiative: the Half Marathon will donate as many euros as participants have crossed the finish line. In addition, when registering, every runner had the possibility to voluntarily donate €3 to this year’s charity.

The total donation made by the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Half Marathon on behalf of all of the runners who have finished the race amounts to €11,768.

Thanks to them, besides the records of participation and finishers, the 2016 Valencia Half Marathon has broken yet another record, the amount donated, which was €10,884 in 2015.
