Peschiera del Garda (Italy), Sunday 13 March 2011
A new 15K run will take place in mid-March near Peschiera del Garda (pictured), a very pretty small town that sits on the southern shore of Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake.
Starting and finishing at the Parc Hotel Paradiso & Golf Resort, the route is a scenic loop around sand bunkers, putting greens, tennis courts and exclusive hotels.
The mildly undulating course will take runners around the 18-hole championship golf course of the "Golf Club Paradiso del Garda" as well as through vineyards, fields and villages.
