Where is the Start and Finish of the Valencia Marathon?
The marathon starts at different points in different years, depending on the course chosen by the Valencian Sports Club. In 2020, it started at the Pont de Mont Olivet, a sophisticated bridge that extends Santiago Calatrava.
For 2023, the marathon is set to start at Placa de la Marato on 03th December 2023, where the marathoners will pick up their gear (the runners’ bib and the runners’ bag) the day before. The Placa de la Marato is located in the Museo Principe Felipe. All the runners will assemble here so that the marathon can begin.
Where does the Valencia marathon finish?
The marathon will end at a walkaway over the water in the City of Arts and Sciences. This is at the Museo de las Ciencias Principe Felipe. The course will go through some amazing sites that include but are not limited to Mercado de Colon, Palua de la Musica and Jardin del Turia.
It is relatively flat, giving the runners a great opportunity to make their best records and improve on those they had already set in the past. There are good places for cheerers to stand to encourage the marathoners as the course goes on.
