First of all note the date 17th September 2016. Pretty soon right?
Why join the Mugello Marathon?

There are many reasons to do so. One could be that the Mugello Marathon is the oldest marathon in Italy. In the early 70s There were no marathons yet. In those years, the only existing marathons were organized for the selection for the Olympic Games. They were races restricted to a few tens of athletes. In 1974 a group of keen runners of Borgo san Lorenzo lead by Franco Sargenti and Roberto Gherardi later assisted by Mario Boretti planned the first marathon in Italy called “Prima Maratona del Mugello” (First Mugello Marathon).
Another reason to join the Mugello Marathon is its setting.

The heart of the Mugello Valley just a step away from Florence and yet solidly anchored in the Tuscan countryside with all the familiar plethora of Tuscan musts such as rolling hills, wonderful views of vineyards and olive groves and small medieval and Renaissance towns like Scarperia which is right inside the marathon trail. The programme is also meant for families with its special family run event.
