The Giulietta & Romeo Half Marathon is held each February in Verona, a beautiful city of art and culture, and the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet play.

It's a very popular early-season road running event that attracts several thousand runners from all over the globe.

There are three options to choose from:

  • 10k non-competitive run
  • 10k race
  • 21.1k half marathon

Starting at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi stadium in the western part of Verona, and finishing on the athletics track inside the stadium, the 10k route takes the runners to the city centre and through the picturesque Old Town, passing many of Verona's best sights, including the Arena, the third-largest of all Roman amphitheatres.

Participants in the half marathon also run along the Adige river to the vineyards and fields on the north-western edge of the city. About seven kilometres of the course are run along the river.

The half marathon course is certified and largely flat.
