Valencia, World Running Capital

For those of us who long ago gave up running for buses and trains on medical advice, it is perhaps a Little strange to see Valencia fast becoming a reference point for running events. However, that’s the way it is, that’s the way the cookie crumbles, as the International Association of Athletics Federations ((IAAF) decided to choose Valencia over other front-runners such as Lima, Toronto, Minsk, Copenhagen and Sopot in Poland to host the 2018 23rd World Half Marathon in March of that year (possibly in Fallas when the streets are practically empty anyway).

The event usually takes place every two years and the 2016 event takes place in Cardiff on 26th March; after which Valencia will take up the baton.
