The meeting place is at the Pineta of Barberino at 7 PM on June 23. Departure is set for 8:30 PM from the center of town. The routes are an 8 kilometer competitive race and a fun race of 4 kilometers. Entry fee is 5 Euros: the first 200 who sign up will get a race package (2 euros without the package).
