MARAHATON OCTOBER 5 TO 7 https://www.montepulcianorun.it/
In one of the places that best represent the “Terre di Siena”, here is the third edition of Montepulciano Run, a “3 day” of jogging sports, competitive and non-competitive, dedicated to the joy of being together, to compete, to race, or just to stroll following a slower pace. Many events are planned; and also many moments of pure fun in which everyone can participate. The sites are among the most beautiful in Tuscany, situated between vineyards and olive groves, a few steps from the Val d’Orcia, in an old town that is steeped of history and Renaissance culture. And then there are many wineries, some with architectural beauty which deserve a visit from also those who do not drink wine, others in the surrounding rolling countryside.
