Valencia Marathon launches once more the Personal Best programme in order to reward those runners who overcome themselves
EDP Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Marathon, organized by SD Correcaminos and the City Council, is preparing to relaunch, once more, the programme Personal Best in order to improve runners’ career addressed to high-level athletes. This programme aims to award 2,000 or 4,000 euros to athletes, who surpass their personal record in València next 19th November, below 2h20:00 (men) or 2h45:00 (women), whatever their position in the rankings.
In order to support this programme, the organization will provide accommodation and will support expenses for 3 days (from 17th to 19th November) to all runners from any country who expressly apply for taking part in this Personal Best programme, provided that they meet the requirements set and could prove with documents which is their personal record (personal best) achieved in the last 4 years (between 2014 and 2017) under 2h20:00 (or under 1h06:00 or under 30:15 in half marathon and 10,000 metres, respectively) and all female runners under 2h45:00 (or under 1h17:00 or under 35:30 in half marathon and 10,000 metres, respectively).
With the Personal Best programme, the EDP Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Marathon continues with last years’ objective of consolidating the presence of athletes coming from many countries which contribute with elite and semi-elite athletes, and of rewarding effective work and self-improvement in the race.
The challenge is to present new ideas and projects, edition after edition, to help to improve the best, not only those who win but, also, those who come immediately behind them and become sports and media ambassadors of this IAAF Gold Label marathon in their respective countries.
