The Valencia Marathon is canceled! Compensation, date 2021 ...
We have been dreading it and finally "the bomb has fallen." The 2020 Trinidad Alfonso Foundation Valencia Marathon has announced that it is canceling next December's edition after not seeing viable the organization of the event with more than 30,000 registered runners. Was one of the last greats on the international calendar that was still standing (The London Marathon has already announced that it will hold only the elite edition and that the route for it radically varied), but the current situation due to the coronavirus pandemic has ended up knocking down one of the most anticipated races in recent seasons. In addition, it should be remembered that the test organized by the SD Roadrunner premiered the platinum label in 2020.
“The Organization of the Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon, in charge of the SD Correcaminos and the City Council of València, regrets having to make the decision to cancel the celebration of
the popular race of its 40th edition, scheduled for December 6. The Organization of the test has wanted to speed up the options for its celebration in a safe way for the
runners, but the evolution of the health situation due to covid-19 and the uncertainty of the near future forces us to renounce to host the participation of the 30,000 participants who sold out the numbers in 2020 ”.
"Marathon Valencia wants to ensure the best guarantees for the celebration of the event for participants, companions, public and volunteers, as well as the organizational team, which is not feasible right now with this high number of participants."
The options offered by the organization are raised to four and are as follows:
- Change registration for a place for the edition in 2021 (December 5, 2021).
2. Request the 100% refund of the cost of your registration (except the voluntary solidarity contribution, which has been allocated as planned to Save The Children,
solidarity entity this year).
3. Give up the amount registration for the test as a commitment to the Organization, being able to enjoy a preferential registration in the first price bracket in 2021.
4. Participate in a remote manner in the 40th Anniversary running the 4.0 Valencia Marathon wherever you want, receiving at home the Luanvi shirt and medal of this edition among other benefits and details that will be announced later.
