The 55-year-old San Silvestre Vallecana 10k has achieved the IAAF Gold label

Its recognition by the International Athletics Federation (IAAF) with the prestigious Golden Label running, which recognizes the best races in the world on the road.

Finally, the race must have a high organizational level, so that it meets the demanding quality standards established by the IAAF itself.
