This event has ended

Three days of sport, culture and nature to enjoy a healthy run among the beauties of Ravenna

Piazza del Popolo - Ravenna

Diga Foranea - Via Molo San Filippo - Porto Corsini

Ravenna, Porto Corsini, Marina Romea (RA)

A new appointment for runners and their families. From June 29th to July 1st the first edition of Ravenna Running Tour will be held in Ravenna, a stage race (competitive and non-competitive, 5 or 10km, with awards at every race) to have an amazing experience between the monuments and nature of the territory of Ravenna.

The first competition starts on June 29th with Ravenna Night Run, a night circuit of 5 km in the centre of the Byzantine city. The start is in Piazza del Popolo at 8pm, with a route through the most beautiful streets of Ravenna city centre. Participants can also buy a specific ticket to visit the monuments and the amazing cathedrals of Ravenna accompanied by a guide, and to learn mosaic techniques thanks to the atelier of mosaicist Annafietta with Byzantine techniques and modern patterns.

On June 30th the competition Run in the Sea kicks off. The time trial of 5 km also includes an original route along the Diga Foranea of Porto Corsini and a return route that winds with its 2.5 km to the sea. A day at the seaside is associated with this race, organised by the beach resort Romea Beach, to enjoy the shore and the sun.

On July 1st runners compete again, but the scenery is completely different. Mare, Pineta e Valli Run is on an amazing panoramic route immersed in the nature and in the pine forest of Pialassa, one of the areas of Ravenna that is part of the Po Delta Nature Park, full of glittering water, where some protected species of animals and birds live. Also in this case, exclusively for the participants of Ravenna Running Tour two excursions are organised in Valle della Baiona in Marina Romea, one by kayak and one by boat (participants' choice).

Date: the event will be held on Jun 29, 2017, Jun 30, 2017, Jul 01, 2017
