Race Distance: Marathon

... or the 'Maratón Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP' to give it its full name. Wide, flat roads; great support and music from local associations at the roadside; low winter sun getting to 22 degrees C in the open and 16 degrees in the shade; sight-seeing as you pass through the city centre; and a fast final 800m as you drop down to finish alongside the City of Arts and Sciences. The second time I’ve run this and it’s a great run. I hadn’t brought my running legs with me, so settled for a slow plod round - slow enough to be overtaken by a man balancing an open bottle of Coca-Cola on his head.
