Valencia Marathon opens goal

The 41st Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon will have a great finish line of 300 meters which will run over the lakes of the City of Arts and Sciences to cross the arch in front of the Hemisfèric. The long-awaited blue walkway over the water changes its location a few hundred meters to make room for a much wider and safer post-goal for runners without losing an iota of spectacularity.

The Organization of the Valencia Marathon, in charge of the SD Correcaminos and the Valencia City Council, decided to change the location of the goal Due to the fact that during this 2021 the Prince Felipe Museum of Sciences (usual place in the last decade) has hosted the most important mass vaccination point against COVID-19 in the city and it was not certain that the ‘vaccine field ‘was disassembled for the date of the test, so it was necessary to work with other options with the intention of not being any interference for this vaccination action.

The new goal next to the Hemisfèric will have a straight 100 meters longer than the previous one, with almost 300 in length, which will be accessed directly after the descent to the Jardin del Turia, a descent that has been smoothed and standardized to be more comfortable. Thus, the last two 90 degree turns are avoided that had the layout, but above all, it is possible to have a much wider and safer post-finish area and a better evacuation area for runners.

As for the rest of the circuit, it is basically the same as in 2019 with a difference from the first kilometers. After taking the exit at Plaça de la Marató, along the right road of the Monteolivete bridge, in the Plaza de Europa they will turn left along the Paseo de la Alameda until they reach Avenida de Baleares, where the runners will have three kilometers in straight line down a wide avenue that will allow the race to stretch comfortably.

The other changes that have been made are small adjustments to improve, if possible, the bonanza of a circuit designed to achieve the best possible marks of the elite or of the thousands of popular runners that will accompany them this 2021 in the return of the participants. professionals. For Ricardo Íñiguez, responsible for circuits together with Blaca Iribas and Ximo Navarro, commented that “We believe that it will be an even faster circuit, especially in the final part, where the altimetry will be favorable for them and they will only find a turn in the last three kilometers.”
