Fogliano Redipuglia (Italy), Saturday 25 April 2015
The Marcia di Redipuglia is a non-competitive event for runners and hikers, held every year on 25 April, the day when Italians celebrate the ‘Anniversario della liberazione d'Italia’, the Liberation of Italy from fascism.
The event takes place "Sul Carso della Grande Guerra", the Karst region on the Italy-Slovenia border where fierce battles were fought between the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies during World War I.
Three multi-terrain routes are on offer — 6km, 13km, and 25km long.
The routes are undulating-to-hilly and very beautiful and scenic, starting and finishing in the village of Fogliano Redipuglia which sits on the left bank of the River Isonzo, about halfway between the cities of Udine and Trieste.
All routes pass the Sacrario militare di Redipuglia (pictured below), Italy's largest war memorial, which contains the remains of more than 100,000 soldiers.
