For those who fancy a running holiday in Italy, 2016 is the perfect year to do so with Ecomaratona del Chianti (Chianti Marathon) celebrating its 10th anniversary. The Tuscany race will be held on Sunday 16 October, starting from Brolio Castle.
The route is relatively easy to start with, featuring gentle and fast slopes through the silvery semi-desert landscape of Crete Senesi. Participants will cross Chianti going past vineyards, olive groves and beautiful small farms, villas and castles. After 8k, the route alternates between short flat stretches and easy slopes before crossing Tenua di Arceno, with the unforgettable boulevard of cypresses, then coming back to the starting point.
