The race organizers announced that some of the best athletes on the international scene will take to the streets of Valencia Ciudad del Running with the aim of improving the course record (2:03:00) and seeking the best women’s debut in the history of the event.
Seven runners with personal times faster than 2:05 over the Marathon distance, including Tamirat Tola (2:03:39), the reigning World Marathon champion, who heads the men’s line-up alongside his Ethiopian compatriots Getaneh Molla (2:03:34) and Dawit Wolde (2:04:27) –lead the lineup.
In the women’s contest, the spotlight will be on the long-awaited debut of Ethiopia’s Letesenbet Gidey, who is the current world record holder over the 5000, 10000, 15K and half marathon disciplines.
Gidey, who is no stranger to setting records in Valencia, will make an eye-catching debut in a marathon in the Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP 2022 on Sunday with the realistic ambition of beating the time of 2:17:23 (world record for a debutant), but also of getting as close as possible to the women’s world record of 2:14:04 (Brigid Kosgei, Chicago).
“We are very proud that Letesenbet Gidey has chosen Valencia to make her marathon debut,” said Marc Roig, elite international coach for the Valencia Marathon. “It is a clear demonstration that we are an attractive marathon and of the very strong links between Gidey and the city of Valencia.
“But, as ever, the Valencia Marathon is not based on a single name: fifteen of the women have run under 2h26 and fourteen of the men under 2h07. And let’s not forget the three debutants with 58 minutes and another one with 57 minutes in the half marathon.”
