The next World Half Marathon Championships will be held in Gdynia, Poland. It was scheduled for March 29, 2020 but was postponded until Oct 17, 2021 due to the Coronavirus.
The first one was first held in 1992. The collaboration with the world half marathon championships allows the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation to continue its strategy of supporting sports events that help to position València as the city of running. It has been the main contributor to the Valencia Marathon and Half Marathon for the past five years. The Spanish Federation considers these races to be the best Spanish races at these distances and the fastest on national soil. In addition, they are the first races in the country to obtain the IAAF Gold Label and, recently, Joyciline Jepkosgei broke her own world record* (1:04:51) at the 27thedition of the Valencia Half Marathon on Sunday 22ndOctober.
