Dear Runners, here we go again: Firenze Marathon 2010

Are you ready? On Sunday 28th November, you will have to run in Florence, with Florence Marathon!

The 27th edition of Firenze Marathon is expected to count more registrations than last year (witch counted 10,180 participants). Today, registrations are about 9,500.

This year, athletes will have the chance to visit museums at the special price of 2,00 Euros thanks to the voucher they will find in the magazine they will receive together with a pack when they receive their sport number at Marathon Expò.

In this edition, the itinerary will be different, becoming more flowing.

Dear runners, this year you will start again from Piazzale Michelangelo, but you will have to run towards Piazza Ferrucci, in the opposite direction compared to the itinerary of last years. You will run in Viale Michelagnelo and for 1,5 km you will go down. Once arrived to piazza Ferrucci, you will cross the Arno river, and afterwards you will run on the large avenues that will lead you toward the Cascine park.

Later, you will find the beautiful squares called Piazza Beccaria, Piazza Donatello and Piazza della Libertà…and so on… :-)

Children and teens will be the protagonists of the “Ginky Family Run”, a 2-km-long, non-competitive race, which will take place on Sunday 28th November starting and ending in Piazza Santa Croce. They will also take part in 2nd edition of the event “I più veloci e i più forti di Firenze” taking place on Friday 26th. Also this year, 2,500 little participants are expected to be in Florence for such a special marathon.

A weekend entirely dedicated to sport and fun, for adults and children.
