The edition of the Chianti Classico Marathon 2019 is already set for June 2nd. And registrations are already open.

The race on the hills of the Florentine Chianti Classico returns, for the joy of all runners who will be able to enjoy the beauty of this unique territory.

The setting for this competition – which will take place mostly on unpaved roads, amongst vineyards and in the woods – is one of Italy’s most beautiful landscapes.

The heart of the race will once again be the town of Mercatale, and the route’s highlights include the Cantine Antinori, the ancient Abbey of Badia a Passignano, the wonderful historic centre of Greve in Chianti, the Medieval hamlet of Montefioralle and its “Castle “, perched on the hill above Greve, the castles of Verrazzano and Gabbiano.

As usual, there will be three routes on the Chianti hills: 44 km Ultra Trail, 21 km Trail, 10 km Nordic Walking.

On you can find all the info and a section where you can register online.
