Valencia Marathon will count as a qualifying event for the Abbott WMM Wanda Age Group World Championships
The Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP on the 1st December 2019 (held by SD Correcaminos Club and City Council) will be among more than 100 world races that will make up the qualifying events for the 2021 edition of the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Championships.
The Abbott WMM Wanda Age Group World Rankings launched in September 2018 with the qualifying for the first series ending at the 2019 BMW Berlin Marathon and the inaugural Abbott WMM Wanda Age Group World Championships taking place at the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2020.
The Valencia Marathon will join the line-up of qualifying events for the 2019/2020 cycle, with top runners aged 40 and above earning a place at the 2021 World Championships. The Abbott WMM Wanda Age Group World Rankings is for runners aged 40 and above, with nine age categories for men and women. Runners need to complete one of the qualifying races, create their profile on www.abbottwmm.com and then claim their results from these races. The qualification period follows the series dates of the Abbott World Marathon Majors. For those that run more than two of the qualifying events, their top two times will be considered.
The Valencian circuit is among the world’s ten fastest courses so age group runners would do well to take part in our 2019 event to get their qualification off to a flying start. Registration for the 2019 Valencia marathon is open now until it reaches 25,000 registrations.
Paco Borao, Valencia Marathon’s Race Director, said “being part of this selective group of world marathons means another step in order to grow as event with better runners, with a such a fast course as the one we have in Valencia City of Running”
