Campolonghetto di Bagnaria Arsa (Italy), Tuesday 6 January 2015

Marcia dei Magi, Campolonghetto, Italy - a runner on the Bassa Friulana Plain (Copyright © 2014 Hendrik Böttger /


The Marcia dei Magi (‘March of the Wise Men’) is held every year on Epiphany, a Christian feast day that is celebrated in many countries on 6 January.

"La manifestazione non è competitiva", which means that it's a non-competitive event for runners and hikers of all ages and abilities.

A marcia is not a race. Finishing times are not recorded. Prizes are awarded to the largest groups, not to the fastest finishers.

Participants run (or walk) either 7km, 15km or 21km on mixed terrain (asphalt roads, gravel roads, and trails) around the village of Campolonghetto which is located near the old fortress town of Palmanova in the province of Udine in the north-east of Italy.

All routes are very flat loops through farmland and villages on the Bassa Friulana Plain.
