News : This is the Valencia Marathon shirt
The Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon and New Balance present in an original way the official shirt of the test that will be held on December 5 in the capital of Turia.
Through a symbolic Fallas scene, with two runners crossing the finish line of the Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon, we have been able to get to know the official New Balance jersey that runners from all over Spain and many foreign countries will wear that in just three months will play this important test of the athletic calendar.
The proximity of the Fallas de València, caused by a change in dates, has made both events close enough on the calendar for this original presentation, carried out by the sculptor Manolo Rubio. In it, two ninots representing two runners while they compete in the event, has made them (the ninots) the first to show it off publicly.
The Prince Felipe Science Museum has been the place chosen for this symbolic presentation. The biggest falleras of Valencia have not been missing Consuelo Llobell and Carla García, their courts of honor and, of course, some of the best athletes of the New Balance Team (like Javi Guerra, who recently played the Olympic Games in Beijing or Nacho Giménez, who is precisely originally from Valencia). Representatives of the Valencian athletics clubs have also been present. And together, they have been able to see first-hand the details of this shirt.
exist two different models with a specific cut for men or women. One model is with short sleeves, while the other is with suspenders, so that everyone can choose the one they like the most. “RUN VALENCIA MARATHON”Is the motto that will be printed on these t-shirts.
At the time of the parliaments, we highlight the words of Paco Borao, president of SD Correcaminos (organizer of the Marathon, together with the Valencia City Council) and Daniel Scheidgen, Marketing Director of New Balance Iberia.
Valencia joins New York and London
Paco Borao: “Our marathon has grown a lot, especially in recent years, and this union with New Balance gives us that plus that we have been looking for to endorse the name of our event: international projection. Not surprisingly, you know that NB also dresses the New York and London Marathons, and they will do it with Valencia with the same quality and passion for the runner, and if you will allow me, combining the grandeur of New York and glamor from London, the beauty of Valencia ”.
Daniel Scheidgen: The company has taken advantage of its long experience in this type of action, acquired by also being the technical sponsor in cities such as New York or London, to provide a quality garment that is at the level required by the Valencian event and its participants and where each child detail that makes up it is elaborated with the utmost care ”.
On behalf of the Valencia City Council, Pilar Bernabé, councilor for sports, highlighted that: “FWe were the first city in the world to run a marathon with such a difficult situation. València continues to be on the map and a world reference for showing that we can start big sporting events ”. “My recognition of the effort of the falleros and falleras who have planted everything and that links us to that culture of effort such as marathoners. Today could not be a better day to make this presentation that unites the Fallas and the Valencia Marathon ”.
It should also be noted that, taking advantage of the event, the American brand New Balance will activate a series of exclusive products of the Valencia Marathon. They will be available in a series of establishments throughout the national territory as of September 15. These products and merchandising inspired by the city of Valencia will also be available at the Expo Deporte corridor fair. This fair will take place the days before the race and will allow runners to purchase a product that will serve as a souvenir of their experience in the Valencia Marathon, considered the best in Spain and one of the best in the world.
