The 10 km night run in Gandia, a large part of which is on the beach, is a great way to appreciate the Mediterranean and is more than enough reason to spend a weekend in the city.

The Toni Herreros Memorial 10 km night run on the beach in Gandia is set for June 4 at 9pm. The run is unique and special for many reasons, starting at dusk and finishing at night under the moonlight. It is a great opportunity to do something new and enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean.

Every year, the race sees participation from seasoned runners who complete the circuit in excellent times. A good part of the route runs along Gandia’s promenade on a beach full of tourists and in a pleasant summery atmosphere. Fun and support for the participants are guaranteed.

The race is organised by the Club d’Atletisme Safor Teika and is part of the Circuit de Curses Populars de la Diputació de València.

Since it was first created, the Gandia night run has had a female participation rate of around 30 per cent of the total number of runners. The organisers hope to increase this percentage every year and women are encouraged to sign up.

This year after the race, there will be a special gastronomy fair and summer concerts, giving visitors a good reason to stay in Gandia for the weekend and discover the beach, the historic centre and the city’s many tourist attractions.

Gandia can be reached by road (AP-7), bus train or plane (one hour from Valencia). Registration will open from May 19 at www.10kgandia.com. The registration fee will be €10 from April 22 to May 25 and €15 from May 26 to June 1.

 Registration will be open until 11:59pm on Wednesday, June 1, or until 4,000 people have signed up. Registrations will not be accepted on the day of the race.
