December 21, 2023
  • The training sessions were held on December 16 at the Quirónsalud Mercado de Colón Medical Center in Valencia.

The 2024 edition of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja will once again have the support of its Healthcare Partner, Quirónsalud. And within its new actions and with the aim of ensuring the safety of participants, the health group has conducted training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid.

The training sessions, aimed at runners and volunteers, took place last Saturday, December 16 at the Quirónsalud Mercado de Colón Medical Center in Valencia and were led by Dr. Maite Resta and Dr. Julia Muñoz, specialists from the Emergency Department of the Quirónsalud Valencia Hospital.

Quirónsalud assures that speed of action "is key when an emergency situation arises during the race. Volunteers, even the participants themselves who are running, are the first people who can detect such situations. That is why it is so important that they have been trained in basic CPR and first aid measures that can save lives.

The health group, which since the 2023 edition is part of the group of sponsors and collaborators of the best 10K in Spain, also strengthens its support to the event by naming this year's edition for the first time to the children's races: 10Kids Valencia Quirónsalud.

Registrations are now available at https://10kvalencia.com/10-kids-quironsalud/ at a price of 2 euros per bib, to be paid when picking it up at the Feria de la Cerrera. The 10Kids Valencia Quirónsalud will be held on the same day as the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, January 14, 2024, starting at 11:45 am. Once the main event is over, the young runners, aged 0 to 16 years, will take the start to run between 300 and 1500 meters.
