Valencia, the city of running is built on all the running events taking place in the city. It is not a single event: it is more of a lifestyle with the support of many larger organizations and international races. Some organizations include Valencia City Hall and Trinidad Alfonso Foundation. Examples of international races include Valencia Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso, Marathons in Valencia, Trinidad Alfonso, Valencia 10K Trinidad Alfonso, and much more!
Valencia tends to have good weather year round making it possible and enjoyable to run whenever you want to. We have 300 days of sunshine! This city also has an abundant amount of trails to go running or hiking! The best part is, there are no hills in Valencia making running more enjoyable and relaxing. More than 19.000 runners join the Marathon in Valencia, that is in november, running 42,195 kilometers around Valencia.
The beach is also a very popular spot to run. If you’re looking to run on the beach, check out Marina Real Juan Carlos I, Maritime Boulevard, and the pasture area of El saler.
However, if you don’t want to get all sandy, head over to the Turia Gardens! It’s 9 kilometers long. The Turia Gardens will also be hosting the Turia Gardens 5k Circuit.
Here in Valencia, we have many opportunities to get your steps in! If you’re tired after a day of running, come check out Youth Bar located near the beach and the City of Arts and Sciences. Book in advance: they fill up fast!
