This half marathon race is held on a flat and fast, certified and traffic-free course around the small town of Paese near the city of Treviso in northern Italy.

The finish line is in Paese but the start is about 2.5 kilometres from Paese at the ‘BHR Treviso Hotel’.

The route is a single loop through agricultural land and villages on the vast Venetian Plain, mostly on asphalt roads.

Almost 800 runners completed the half marathon last year. The top finishers were Eric Sebahire of Rwanda (1:05:11) and Giovanna Ricotta of Italy (1:19:40).

The event is held every year around St Martin's Day, the feast day of St Martin of Tours, which is celebrated on November 11 in many European countries.
