34th Marathon of Florence
Back for the 34th time the main road racing event taking place in Tuscany, the Marathon of Florence, on Sunday November 26th.
Thousands of riders will gather to participate at the marathon, one of the world’s 20 most important in terms of quality and number of participants, 42 kilometers long and 195 meters.
The new track will touch the most fascinating places of Florence such as Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and Santa Croce with departure and arrival at Piazza Duomo, and will involve not only the enthusiastic spectators and racers but also those who can not physically reach the city, thanks to the live connection on RaiSport1.
Piazza della Repubblica, on the other hand, will kick off the Ginky Family Run, a race designed for the families, and there will be a sports entertainment village in addition to a refreshment.
Even this year registration numbers are trending upward and there are good prospects for reaching or exceeding the number of participants last year that was 8670.
Also the official shirt designed by ASICS and the medal, made by a South African company, both depicting the Florentine skyline deserve a special note.
The days before the marathon, on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th November, will be rich in events such as Corri La Vita, the most important charity racing race in Italy with more than 35,000 members, the 30 x 1000 meter relay race dedicated to Mauro Pieroni and on the other side, events within the Marathon Expo, the largest sports-theme exhibition in the city of Florence, to be held at the Acer Florence Marathon Stadium at Campo di Marte.
Everything will end on Sunday evening with the Marathon Party where music, shows , Tuscan food and wine stands will cheer up your night.
