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 a crowd of more than 5,000 half marathon runners and 500 relay teams (10km+11km).

Starting at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi stadium in the western part of Verona, the half marathon consists of two laps, approximately 10km and 11km long.

The course is largely flat and very scenic as it winds its way through the city centre and through the picturesque Old Town, passing many of Verona's best sights.

The finish line is on Piazza Bra in front of the Arena, the third-largest of all Roman amphitheatres.


Update (16 January 2021):

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the 2021 event will be held in June instead of February. The race will feature a new single-loop course. The start and the finish line will be at Stadio Bentegodi. The entry limit is 4,000 runners. Participants will start in waves of 500 runners, at 10-minute intervals. The first wave will be started at 7am.
