Statement from organisers
Valencia Marathon cancelled
Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon
Sun 6 December 2020
The Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP Organisation, run by SD Correcaminos and the Valencia City Council, regrets having to make the decision to cancel the 40th edition of the popular race scheduled for 6 December.
The uncertain situation due to COVID-19 forced us to forgo hosting the 30,000 participants that bought all places available for the 2020 edition.
As happened with the Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP a few weeks ago, registered runners will be contacted in the next few days to start the process of choosing, from 15 September, the options regarding their entry:
- Exchanging their entry for a place on the 2021 edition (5 December 2021).
- Requesting full refund of the cost of their entry (excluding the voluntary charitable donation, which was paid to Save the Children, this year’s charity, as planned).
- Renouncing refund of the entry fee for the event as a token of support to the Organisation, while enjoying preferential registration at the price set for the first tranche of entries available for 2021.
- Participating in a remote way in the 40th Anniversary by running the 4.0 Valencia Marathon where desired, receiving at home the Luanvi shirt and a medal for this edition among other gifts and surprises (all details to be announced soon).
Three months before the scheduled date for the event, we started the cancellation process to respond to the concerns of all participants and not to make things worse for those runners who had to schedule their trip and accommodation in Valencia.
