The Romeo & Giulietta Run Half Marathon (until 2023 known as ‘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 over 6,000 runners from all over the globe.

In 2024, there will be three options to choose from:

  • 21.1k half marathon
  • 11+10k relay
  • 5k run or walk

We have no information yet if the race course will be the same as in 2023. Please check the official event website for details (see link below).

In 2023, the half marathon route began at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi stadium in the western part of Verona. The finish line was on the athletics track inside the stadium.

The route took the runners to the city centre and through the picturesque Old Town, passing many of Verona's best sights, such as the Arena, the third-largest of all Roman amphitheatres. The route also ran along the Adige river to the vineyards and fields on the north-western edge of the city. About seven kilometres of the course were run along the river.

The half marathon course was certified and largely flat.
