2016 is over. It’s time to look at the new sports season. We have to think about a race in which to participate, maybe combining it with a weekend in the discovery of the scenic and wine/food offerings of our beautiful country.

Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15, the appointment with the EcoMaratona of Chianti will host its 11th edition.

The 10th edition also celebrated the 300th anniversary of the consortium of Chianti Classico, an event which had more than 5.000 participants between competitive and noncompetitive trials, thus confirming it as an appointment which combines sports and the valorization of the territory.

There were more entries in  2016, with foreign participation counting over 700 athletes, representing over 20 countries. While awaiting the participants and winners of the 2017 EcoMaratona, let us review the fastest of the two competitive trials of the last race.



The Chianti Classico Trail’s podium was as follows: Alberto Mosca (Atletica Palzola, 1h17’36”), Marco Quaglia (Asd Top Runners Castelli Romani, 1h26’33”) and Marco Oppioli (Golden Club Rimini Internazionale, 1h28’31”) among the men; Federica Moroni (Golden Club Rimini Internazionale, 1h36’36”), Elena Briganti (Asd Atletica Gran Sasso Teramo, 1h40’52”) and Melissa Ragonesi (G.S.D.
