Watch the Valencia Marathon LIVE this Sunday

It's one of the world's most prestigious marathons and a chance to qualify for next year's Olympics in Tokyo. See full coverage of the Valencia Marathon from 7am this Sunday, Dec 6th on eir sport 1.

It's considered one of the best marathon courses in the world - flat and fast around one of Europe's most vibrant and picturesque cities.

Normally early December in Valencia sees up to 30,000 people taking part in this popular annual event, but 2020 will be different with the field reduced to just 300 elite male and female athletes on account of the COVID-19 virus.

Both races are sure to be competitive with the prospect of qualifying for next year's Olympics on offer.

See all the action as the famous Spanish city welcomes some of the world's best athletes.
