Route description
Route description

The fast and flat course takes you past some of Valencia's most iconic and historic landmarks as it weaves its way through the city streets. With completely closed roads, loud crowds lining the day, and only 23m of elevation change throughout the whole course, it is guaranteed to be a speedy and epic experience.

Celebrate after the race with the ~25000 other participants at the Paella party, where you can mix, mingle and swap race stories with your fellow runners.
