Verona (Italy), Sunday 10 June 2012
The 13km route runs across the Ponte Pietra, which was built 2200 years ago.
On 10 June 2012, around 15,000 or more runners and walkers are expected to participate in the 30th Straverona, held in the city of Verona in northern Italy.
The Straverona is not a race, it's a "manifestazione non competitiva", which means that finishing times will not be recorded, and there will be no results lists.
Participants can choose between three distances - 5km, 13km, and 21km.
Start is from 9am to 9.30am at the Arena, Verona's gigantic Roman amphitheatre, situated on Piazza Bra in the beautiful historic city centre.
The 5km route is a flat loop through the old town, whereas the 13km and 21km routes also go up and down the hills north of the city.
