Global Running Day, a global celebration of the passion for running, has once again caused a sensation in Valencia, as it has brought together its main clubs. Like every year, on the first Wednesday of June, around half a thousand running lovers have gathered for this non-competitive meeting in the Turia Garden, the ideal space to host this day, which also this year coincides with World Environment Day. precisely the year in which Valencia boasts its designation as European Green Capital during 2024.

For this reason, before starting this non-competitive filming of about 5 kilometers towards the City of Arts and Sciences, the participants collected in the start and finish area located next to the Exhibition Bridge the plantable number that at the end of the day and, following the instructions, they can turn it into a plant, since it is made of plantable paper with seeds that germinate with a little water and soil.

Furthermore, Valencia Ciudad del Running, a project promoted by the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation and the Valencia City Council, wanted to take another step in this celebration by dedicating the Global Running Day to caring for the environment, therefore, for every number that has been collected in the start/finish area to participate in the meet-up, 1 kg of plastic will subsequently be recovered from the Valencian beaches, thanks to the agreement reached by Valencia Ciudad del Running, which will certify this collection of plastic waste.
