Those who have participated in the STRAVERONA fun race over the last 32 years know that tingling feeling.
For those who still do not know, the city of Verona is located along the River Adige in Veneto, near Lake Garda and halfway between Milan and Venice.
It is one of the main tourist destinations in northern Italy, thanks to its artistic heritage, several annual fairs, shows and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans.
Three of Shakespeare’s plays are set in Verona: Romeo and Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and The Taming of the Shrew.
Verona is a UNESCO world heritage. When the runners start the race, they also start a sightseeing tour: Bra Square and the Arena, San Zeno Church, Scaligero Bridge, Castelvecchio, Borsari Gate, the Cathedral, Erbe Square, Pietra Bridge, River Adige, San Pietro Castle and the Torricelle Hills.
The runners get goose bumps: at the start line under the Orologio Gate they are welcomed with art, music and the 20.000 colourful t-shirts.
|6 km||It is a flat path around the Old Town.|
|10 km||It reaches San Pietro Castle on the hills. At the refreshment point you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the city.|
|20 km||It will take you hiking on the hills surrounding the city. It is a challenging but rewarding race.|
The race starts in Bra Square under the Orologio Gate at 9:00 A.M. and the three finish lines are all under the shadow of the old Arena.
