Valencia Marathon to offer one million dollars for a world record

December 5, 2023

It’s no secret that the Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon in Spain boasts one of the fastest courses and deepest marathon fields in the world. For the second consecutive year, the men’s and women’s winner in Valencia has recorded a time under 2:01 and 2:16. While Valencia isn’t part of the six Abbott World Marathon Majors, it continues to attract some of the world’s fastest-distance runners. To set Valencia apart, organizers have an added incentive to the 2024 race—one million euros (CDN $1,400,000) for the man or woman to break the marathon world record on the course. Canadian Running
