The 37th Valencia Marathon Another Incredible Occasion

Over 27,500 runners from 90 nationalities took park in the Valencia Marathon and 10k races on Sunday 19 November, including runners from the UK who booked through Valencia Sports Tours.

Each year, the marathon continues to attract both runners and spectators to the streets of Valencia, creating an atmosphere runners from the UK who took part in both 10k and the marathon said was the best they have ever experienced, having previously taken part in the biggest races across Europe! With Valencia being a city full of beauty and culture, while also being relatively small compared to Europes capitals and metropolises, the 26 mile route passes almost all the sites you could wish to see. Also with the local community fully embracing the marathon, the support is phenomenal.

With the race starting and finishing at the stunning City of Arts and Science, our runners have highlighted just how incredible setting it is as you enter the Turia (riverbed park) in the final kilometre and into the final metres  on the blue carpet between the impressive modern architecture.

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and temperatures reached 20°C on the flat city course. These conditions were of benefit to the elite runners as Kenyan Sammy Kirop Kitwara won the mens race with a course record of 2:05:15 and Ethiopian Aberu Zennebe won the womens in 2:26:17.
