Running alongside the Mediterranean coastline, a few meters from the sea, taking place in areas of the city where events such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Americas Cup were hosted are only a few of the attractions awaiting the participants when they take part in the Valencia Marathon.
The stunning Ciudad de la Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) will serve as the nerve centre of this prestigious event that promises to be a sporting celebration. This architectural masterpiece will not only be both the starting and finishing points of the race but also, it will be the site of the numerous parallel activities planned for the big day. Exceed your expectations as you pass over the shimmering blue pools of the Museo de las Ciencias (Science Museum) Príncipe Felipe and celebrate your triumphant return in this unforgettable setting.
The course is very flat with many runners achieving good times. The route is mainly suburban, avoiding most of the city, but with a scenic stretch along the coast. Notable sites along the route include the Jardin del Turia, Mercado de Colon and Palua de la Musica, finishing at the stunning Museo de las Ciencias Principe Felipe.
The event was first held in 1991 as a race over 20 kilometres known as the 20 kilómetros Ciudad de Valencia and this continued each May up to 2005.
