Valencia, 16-11-2021.- The 10K Valencia Ibercaja has renewed the collaboration with its main sponsor, which gives its name to the race, for the next two editions. Thus, the best 10K in Spain, which is also the fastest in the world, consolidates the support of Ibercaja for the years 2022 and 2023.
The bank, which has given its name to the race since 2017 (9th edition), has supported the event since its first edition 14 years ago, seeing how the 10K Valencia Ibercaja grew year after year both in quantity, with an increasing number of participants, and in quality. Together with Ibercaja, the 10K has been improving the services to the popular runner and has taken the name of Valencia and Ibercaja around the world after achieving the World Athletics Gold Label (one of the 5 races in the world that hold it) and the men's world record in 2020.
Thus, in its XIV and XV edition, the 10K Valencia -which opens again this 2022 the annual calendar of races in Valencia Ciudad del Running-, will continue wearing Ibercaja in its naming.
The director of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, Álex Aparicio, said, "I can't be objective with them (Ibercaja), their unwavering support has been there since we presented the project to them in 2008 and together we form a great team. It is very difficult to find, in such a serious and institutional world, a complicity and trust like the one Ibercaja shows us on a daily basis... long live this alliance".
For his part, Fernando Arcega, head of Institutional Business and Sponsorships at Ibercaja, stated that "we are enormously satisfied with this collaboration and with these 'travelling companions'. Our objectives are totally aligned with those of this event, so that our participation in it allows Ibercaja to transmit to society our corporate purpose "to help people to build the story of their lives" and values intrinsic to our organisation such as closeness, honesty, inclusion, perseverance and effort".
More than 8,000 registered for 9 January
The 10K Valencia Ibercaja, which this year 2022 recovers its usual date to be held next Sunday, January 9th, already exceeds 8,000 registered runners and is entering its 3rd and last registration period to reach the 12,000 bibs that the organisation is offering this year.
Thus, interested runners who are not yet part of the festival can still join (at a price of 18 euros) and, during the registration process, they can also choose to donate 3, 5 or 10 euros extra that will go entirely to the charity of this edition: AMES, Asociación Miastenia de España.
In addition, the race offers a VIP Registration (with a maximum of 100 places available), which includes access to an exclusive area next to the start line for before and after the race, with cloakroom and private toilets, massages, breakfast and post-race lunch, among other services and gifts and at a price of 60 euros.
Ibercaja is one of the largest Spanish banking groups, with 2.7 million customers throughout the country, more than 1,000 branches, 5,000 employees and a volume of activity of 92,000 million euros. It also has its own financial group (investment funds, pension plans, savings and risk insurance, leasing and renting) and is firmly committed to helping and adding value to its customers. Professionalism, proximity and social and territorial commitment are some of the distinguishing features of the Institution. Ibercaja takes on the challenge of ensuring that its business objectives drive sustainable development, preserving natural resources and promoting a fairer and more inclusive society.
