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.

Valencia Sports Tours will be offering packages for the Valencia Marathon 2018, plus, with so many great running events in the city across the year, we will be offering packages on all meets from 10k events up, offering you the chance to visit this wonderful city, taking part in the sport you love, whatever your level.

The Valencia Smash! this Thursday 19 October 2017

The time has arrived, Valencia will play host to its first ever cricket tournament, the Valencia Smash! T20 from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 October 2017.

Just under a year in the making, Valencia Sports Tours and Levante CC have come together to host what we hope will become an annual event on the cricket calendar. Four teams from the UK, Cowley Drifters, Herts Vets, West Hagley and Freshfields, along with their local hosts, with play 11 matches over four days, including two matches under lights.

Supported by Cricket España, this end of the season tournament has been created for several reasons. The first, a great way to finish the season, plenty of great cricket ahead with equal amounts of social interaction guaranteed. The second is to continue the development of Levante CC as an ever growing club, one that is improving on both a cricketing level and internal infrastructure every year and finally to showcase the sport in Valencia like it has never been seen before. This is important for the longevity of the sport in the city, highlight the popularity in the number of players playing, both in Valencia and those prepared to travel to the city from across Europe and beyond, as well as hopefully bring through new young players and locals to the game.

Starting at 4pm on Thursday through to the final on Sunday afternoon, all five teams will play each other once, with the top two sides following these matches playing a final at 1pm Sunday.

If you are in Valencia, make sure you pass by and show your support. The bar will be open throughout the tournament and the weather looks great! Check out the match schedule below!
