Article source: Athletics

Five of the world’s leading half marathons have partnered to create the new SuperHalfs international running series.

The innovative series will bring five of the world’s most beautiful races under the same banner with the aim of promoting running, tourism and environmental sustainability in each of the member cities.

Almost 100,000 participants are set to race at five iconic locations when the inaugural series gets underway in 2020. Runners will have access to a SuperRunner experience, including guaranteed registrations, special race numbers with priority pick up, original merchandising, virtual SuperRunner Passport, a SuperMedal (after completing the series) and the chance to see their names go down in the SuperHalfs Hall of Fame.

Lisbon, Prague, Copenhagen, Cardiff and Valencia; five great cities, five world class events, selected based on their quality, popularity, location, and their sustainability policies.

SuperHalfs participants will run top races in historical cities, across unique and fast courses. All hold IAAF (World Athletics) labels and three are recent IAAF World Half Marathon Championships hosts.

The SuperHalfs hosts will offer the best experience to runners, whilst committing to improving environmental sustainability. Every event will strive to reduce their own carbon footprint with the common goal of becoming the most sustainable collection of half marathons worldwide.

The new series offers running enthusiasts the unique opportunity to map out their own running adventure and be rewarded for their efforts with exclusive benefits. All runners have to do to begin their journey is sign up for any of the SuperHalfs races in 2020. After completing the first race on the SuperHalfs calendar, participants will receive a SuperPassport and after each race, an e-stamp will appear on this virtual and personalized ‘document’. All communications will be digital and runners have 36 months to complete the series to be in line to become a SuperRunner.

This series creates value for the running community bringing great new opportunities to run, travel, and have fun! Coming Soon!
