Running at sunset along the beautiful Chianti Classico country roads is an unforgettable experience, a dream that comes true on Saturday 9th June, on the occasion of the first edition of the “Chianti Classico Trail”.

This event is organized by the Runners section of the Mens Sana Polisportiva, in collaboration with the “Tenuta di Bibbiano” and the patronage of the Consorzio Chianti Classico and the Municipality of Castellina in Chianti, which has made available infrastructures and local associations.

This is the perfect occasion to enjoy the splendid scenery of the Chianti Classico, between Castellina in Chianti and Bibbiano in Chianti, amongst vineyards, rolling hills and country roads: extraordinary landscapes to experience accordingly to the “slow” living philosophy, jogging or simply having a relaxing walk.

There are three planned routes, all departing at 7pm: a twenty-two kilometre round run from Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti; a thirteen kilometre itinerary with departure from the Tenuta di Bibbiano and arrival in Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti, and a eight kilometre walk that starts from Piazza del Comune to Castellina in Chianti and arrives at the Tenuta di Bibbiano.

All departures are scheduled for 7pm on Saturday 9th June 2018; you can find all information visiting the FB page ‘Chianti Classico Trail e Mens Sana Runners’.

You can register on the site: MySdam/ or on the day of the event in Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti.

The event is part of the “Tuscany Run Ten 2018” and of “Top Five Mens Sana”, the circuit of Mens Sana 2018 races.

There will be refreshments along all the routes, goody bags for all the participants (delivered with the chip) and prizes for the overall and category winners. Showers and changing rooms available at Castellina in Chianti’s sports facilities.

There’ll also be shuttles to reach the departure points or the changing rooms.
