Magnano in Riviera (Italy), Sunday 25 October 2015

Marcia delle Castagne - a FIASP marcia in Magnano in Riviera, Province of Udine, Italy (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger /


The Marcia Internazionale delle Castagne ("International Chestnut Walk") takes place in the village of Magnano in Riviera which is situated at the foot of the Julian Prealps in the province of Udine in the north-east of Italy.

A marcia is not a race. It's a non-competitive event without timekeeping or results lists, so it doesn't matter if you run or jog or walk.

This marcia offers five routes: 4km, 7km, 13km, 22km, and 27km. Participants can still decide on the course which distance they want to run (or walk).

All routes are very scenic. The longer routes are also very challenging as they run on mixed terrain (asphalt, gravel and trails) up and down the densely-wooded alpine foothills.

The event forms part of the Festa Sapori di Castagne e Noci, a chestnut and walnut festival where fine food is available at very reasonable prices:
