Valencia defines itself as the City of running. It is true that with the huge park created in the former bed of the Turia river, the city offers a huge and very welcoming playground for runners. But Valencia does not only come down to this fantastic park only. It also hosts a charming old town, labyrinthine alleys, popular neighborhoods with perpendicular avenues, a marina and a welcoming beach. And of course you will run through the complex of the City of Arts and Sciences, its extraordinary architecture and its basins, on which is built on the finish line of the marathon of this city.
*Alternative route : You can choose between 3 different distances. 18.1km for the longest tour (map), 10.km for the Old Town (centre and Turia Gardens) tour, or 9.7km for the tour going to the sea and beach, through Poblados Maritimos district. All tours join at City of Arts and Science.
