Around the corner we have one more edition of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, organized one more year by the C. 10K VALENCIA Athletics premiering the running season in Valencia.
It is a massive urban race with more than 3,000 registered annually of 10 kilometers, where the maximum duration of the test will be 1 hour 40 minutes (100 minutes). The Organization will enable 5 different departures, each separated by 4 minutes apart, the first one being adapted and blind athletes.
The 10K Valencia is one of those tests that no runner should miss.
Cheer up and start the year in the best way... Running!!!!

The men’s world 10km record fell and the women’s record came under threat on Sunday as Rhonex Kipruto and Sheila Chepkirui stormed to success at the10K Valencia Ibercaja.
World 10,000m bronze medallist Kipruto clocked26:24 while his fellow Kenyan Chepkirui ran 29:46 on a bright morning in the Spanish portcity.
Kipruto, who is aged just 20, also broke the official world 5km record with his half-way split of 13:18, although faster times (such as SammyKipketer’s 13:00 from Carlsbad in 2000) were set before it became an official world record distance.
Kipruto’ssecond half was an even faster 13:06 but is not eligible for record ratification and his overall time takes14 seconds off the world 10km recordset by Joshua Cheptegei in the same city just six weeks ago.
Given the current discussion around Nike'sVaporfly shoes,the world record performance was met with some comment on social media that Kiprutohad achieved it while running in adidas shoes, rather than Nike.
