Bolzano-Bozen (Italy), Sunday 9 April 2017

The River Talvera (Talfer) in Bolzano-Bozen, Italy (Copyright © 2012 Hendrik Böttger /


The Vivicitta is held every year simultaneously in approximately 40 cities all over Italy (and in several cities around the world), promoting sport per tutti ("sport for all"), respect for the environment, peace, social equality and the dialogue between cultures.

Last year, around 500 runners took part in the Vivicitta in Bolzano (German: Bozen), capital of Italy's strikingly-beautiful alpine province of Alto Adige (Südtirol), where many people speak German as a first language.

Markus Ploner (37min 51sec) and Johanna von Dellemann (47min 7sec) were the fastest finishers in the 12km race.

You'll have to provide a certificato medico sportivo if you want to take part in this race. You don't need a medical certificate for the non-competitive 6km run.

Participants in the 12km race run two laps of a 6km-long loop course, starting at the Tribunale di Bolzano (district court) in the western part of the city.

The route runs through urban and green areas and along two rivers, the Talvera and the Isarco. It also crosses the foot bridge that we have pictured above.
