Sign-Up Deadline for Firenze Marathon Events
Over 10,000 participants are expected for the 35th annual Firenze Marathon: athletes from all over the world will come together for the event, and the sign-up deadline is this week, on November 14.
Along with Firenze Marathon on Sunday, November 24 (starting line: Piazza del Duomo at 8:30 am), the upcoming weekend will offer the Huawei Relay, the Ginky Family Run, and Marathonabile.
The Firenze Marathon is 42.195 kilometers (26 miles); the entry fee is €80. The route will provide a window on centuries of art, history and culture here in Florence. Marathonabile is an initiative that allows for a reimbursement of the entry fee to all handcycle participants who finish the race to promote a marathon without barriers.
The Huawei 3x7km Relay is a program, established with the Firenze Marathon Charity, to allow participants to run and collect donations for a non-profit organization of their choice. The 21km race will take place in Cascine park the day before the marathon, Nov. 23, at 9:30 am. Teams of three can sign up and each member must complete 7km of the total.
The Ginky Family Run, also in Cascine park on Nov. 23 (3:30 pm), is a run designed for children. The goal of the event is to unite younger and older generations through sport and involve the entire city. Free for children under 14, the registration fee is €10 for adults.
