Fagagna (Italy), Sunday 23 November 2014
The Marcia internazionale per le colline di Fagagna attracts an international crowd of around 2500 participants to the village of Fagagna in the Province of Udine in the north-east of Italy.
A marcia is a non-competitive event for fun runners and hikers. It's not a race. Finishing times are not recorded and there are no results lists. Prizes are awarded to the largest groups, not to the fastest finishers.
This marcia offers four scenic routes (ca. 7km, 12km, 21km, and 30km long) through the gently-rolling hills around Fagagna, mostly on trails and gravel roads, with some sections on well-marshalled asphalt roads.
Along the route, there are many well-stocked feed stations, some of them offering fine local delicacies. The entry fees are very low — € 3 on the day of the event.
