Valencia, 14-10-22.- Quirónsalud joins as Healthcare Partner to the 15th edition of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja to be held on Sunday, January 15. The hospital group thus allies itself with the 10K that has held the world record since the 2020 edition, with Rhonex Kipruto's time of 26'24'', and which is also considered the best race in Spain in its distance, according to the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation (RFEA).
For the director of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, Álex Aparicio, it is "very proud that a group like Quirónsalud supports our race, which continues to grow and consolidate itself as one of the great national and international races thanks to this union. We will work to live up to the expectations of our new sponsor and we are convinced that this collaboration will be a success".
By participating in the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, Quirónsalud consolidates the commitment it has maintained for years with sports health through participation in multiple events and disciplines, since it is a field that is related to health both in the prevention of diseases and in the quality of life in general.
Sport also reflects a series of values with which the Group identifies in its way of working: discipline, spirit of improvement, striving for continuous improvement and teamwork, key to achieving excellence in both the clinical and sports fields.
Thus, Quirónsalud is currently the Medical Service of the MotoGP World Championship, Official Medical Provider of the Spanish Men's and Women's Basketball Team, Official Medical Collaborator of the Sacyr ASOBAL Handball League, and Official Medical Service of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, in addition to collaborating with various soccer, basketball, handball and rugby clubs in our country.
In the last year, it has also ensured the health of important sporting events such as the last two editions of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals, the Mutua Madrid Open tennis tournament, the Nationale-Nederlanden San Silvestre Vallecana, the Behobia/San Sebastián, the Mitja Marató de Barcelona or the last women's Eurobasket held in Spain in 2021, among others.
