The Dicembrina Cervignanese is a non-competitive event that is held annually in December in Cervignano del Friuli, an old town of about 11,000 people, founded by the Romans in the year 181 BC on the Bassa Friulana Plain in the north-east of Italy, approximately 17km from the Adriatic Sea.

More than 650 runners and walkers took part in the the 25th edition of the event in 2015.

Three very flat routes are on offer — 6km, 12km and 21km long.

Starting and finishing at Cervignano's football stadium on the edge of town, all routes run on mixed terrain (asphalt roads, gravel roads and trails) through farmland and vineyards and through the lovely park of the Villa Chiozza which is home to many exotic plants (pictured above).
