The Zurich Marathon Sevilla 2020 gets the Gold Label Road Race of the IAAF

The International Athletics Federation highlights for the third year the sevillian test, whose next edition will be held on february 23.

When there are only 100 days left until its celebration, the Zurich Marathon of Sevilla already has the official certification by the highest international athletic federation. For the third consecutive year, the hispanic test, whose 36th edition will be held on february 23 under the organization of the City of Seville and Motorpress Ibérica, will have the distinctive Gold Label Road Race, which therefore keeps it among the reference marathons of the world and reaffirms its value.

The improvements made by the organization of the Sevillian appointment in recent editions, complying with the demanding requirements of the IAAF, led him in 2018 to receive for the first time the maximum recognition of the federative body. In just two years, he jumped from the bronze category to the gold category after passing through the silver category.

Now, the consolidation of the improvements carried out by the considered marathon with the flattest circuit in Europe, which last year relocated its point of departure and arrival to place it in the historic center of the city, bringing the race closer to fans, has again received official recognition to renew its seal of quality.

The IAAF grants this distinction, which among the marathons of Spain only also have Valencia and Madrid, to road races that meet certain parameters and requirements. These include organizational quality, safety, elite sports level, marks achieved, the number of registrants, international promotion, media impact and exposure of the event.

The Zurich Marathon of Sevilla will remain in 2020 in the international elite of the discipline along with 21 other marathons, in a select Gold Label Road Race group which includes the prestigious appointments of Houston, Osaka, Paris, Rotterdam, Vienna, Hamburg , Prague or Sydney.

ABOVE THE 8.000 ENROLLED

At 100 days for its celebration, the prospects are optimistic to beat the participation record on february 23 and the available 14,000 bibs were sold out. At the moment, there are already more than 8.000 registered, 20% more than last year at this time. Of them, more than 2.500 from other countries, 70 in total represented together with Spain.

The Zurich Marathon of Sevilla, organized by the City of Sevilla and Motorpress Ibérica, has the invaluable collaboration of its main sponsors and collaborators: Zurich, New Balance, Banco Santander, Carrefour, Solán de Cabras and ABC de Sevilla.
