Saturday March 24th 2018 I completed the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships 2018 in Valencia. Find below my full race coverage plus some tourist impressions from this beautiful spanish coast city.
Valencia City includes the charming city centre with shopping, good restaurants and landmarks such as the Marcat Central and Plaza de la Reina and the cathedral. Other turist magnets are the zoo “Bioparc” and the “Oceanografic”, both locations great for kids and families.
IAAF World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018
The IAAF World Half Marathon Championships started and ended at the Science Museum, just as the annual Valencia Marathon itself. This tradition of having a mass field behind the elite runners was started in Copenhagen 2014, continued in Cardiff in 2016 and now in 2018 in Valencia, Spain. The full impact of the event can be seen in my race report below but let me just congratulate on a job well done to the spanish organizers.
