Sacrario militare di Redipuglia, Italy (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)

 

The Marcia di Redipuglia is a non-competitive event that attracts a crowd of about 1,500 or more runners and walkers to the village of Fogliano Redipuglia in the Friuli-Venezia Giula region in the north-eastern corner of Italy.

It is held every year on 25 April, the day when Italians celebrate the Anniversario della liberazione d'Italia, Italy's Liberation from fascism.

The marcia takes place in the "Carso della Grande Guerra", the Karst region on the border between Italy and Slovenia where fierce battles were fought between the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies during World War I.

Three undulating-to-hilly and very beautiful and scenic multi-terrain routes are on offer, approximately 6km, 13km and 25km long.

You can start off at any time between 9am and 10am, and you can still decide on the course which route you want to take.

The first part of the course might get a bit crowded but then the routes split and you can run freely.

We have taken the above photo at the Sacrario militare di Redipuglia, Italy's largest war memorial, which contains the remains of more than 100,000 soldiers.
