Magnano in Riviera (Italy), Sunday 27 October 2013
The Marcia Internazionale delle Castagne ("International Chestnut March") takes place in the village of Magnano in Riviera which is situated at the foot of the Alps in the province of Udine in the north-east of Italy.
The Marcia is not a race. It is a non-competitive event for fun runners and walkers. There's no timekeeping and no results lists. Entries on the day are just € 2.50!
Participants can start at any time between 8.30am and 10am, and they can decide on the course which distance they want to run — 4km, 7km, 13km, 22km, or 27km.
All routes are very scenic. The longer routes are very challenging as they take the participants on forest trails up and down the densely-wooded alpine foothills.
The event forms part of the Sapori di Castagne e Noci, a chestnut and walnut festival that is held every year at the end of October in Magnano.
