Run In Florence
This month the city of Florence will host two different foot races in its beautiful streets. The first one is the Deejay Ten, the costumary event with Linus, the promoter, and Radio Deejay, the main sponsor; then, for the first time in our city, the worldwide famous Color Run. Two peculiar dates for the aficionados or just for whoever wants to have fun and meet new friends!
It’s the fourth time that Florence helds this event, thanks to Radio Deejay, one of the most popular radio in Italy. They sponsor a lot of foot races around Italy, but Florence is maybe the favourite stage of the tour and it seems to interest more and more people every passing year.
This time the start line is set in Lungarno Zecca Vecchia on the 17th of May.
If you want to partecipate you have to pay an entry fee and you can decide between two different courses: one that covers 5 km and one of 10 km.
It doesn’t matter if you are out of shape, noone will judge you and you can take all the time you want to finish it!

As the main motto says: the happiest 5k is on its way!

It’s a worldwide running event that takes place in more than 200 cities all over our planet and this year it will be held in the city of Florence on the 23rd of May in the gorgeous Parco delle Cascine.
What’s the distinctive feature of this foot race? At the start line you’ll have a white plain shirt… when you finish it you’ll be completely covered in colors!
