8th ‘Romeo and Juliet Half Marathon’ 2015
Verona (Italy), Sunday 15 February 2015
The Giulietta & Romeo Half Marathon is one of Italy's most popular half marathon races. In 2014, around 6,500 runners completed the flat and AIMS-certified course through Verona, a beautiful city of art and culture in northern Italy.
The ‘Duo Half Marathon’, a relay race for teams of two (8km+13km), attracted approximately 1,000 runners.
Both races begin at Verona's main stadium in the south-western part of the city and end on Piazza Bra in the city centre. The route consists of two loops (8km+13km).
Participants run across four different bridges over the River Adige, and at the end of the race they run through the Arena, the third-largest of all Roman amphitheatres.
Entrants to the half marathon must provide a membership card of a recognized athletics federation. The relay race, however, is open to all runners.
