The Vivicittà is a running event held every year simultaneously in many cities all over Italy and in several cities around the world, promoting sport per tutti ("sport for all"), respect for the environment, peace, human rights, social equality and the solidarity between different cultures.

Here, we provide information on the Vivicittà in Bolzano (German: Bozen), capital of Italy's strikingly-beautiful alpine province of South Tyrol, where many people speak German as a first language.

You will have to provide a certificato medico sportivo at registration if you want to take part in the 10k race.

You don't need a medical certificate, however, for the non-competitive 5k run.

The 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps of a very scenic loop course that begins and ends at the Tribunale di Bolzano (district court) in the western part of the city.

In 2018, the course was six kilometres long. The route ran on roads and cycleways through urban and green areas and along two rivers, the Talvera and the Isarco, crossing two foot bridges across the Talvera (pictured above).

We have no information on the 2019 route.
