Running at sunset on the “strade bianche” country roads of the Chianti Classico on Saturday 8th June: the exciting “Chianti Classico Trail” running event is now at its second edition, after the successful 2018 edition.

The event is organised by the Runners section of the Polisportiva Mens Sana, in collaboration with the main sponsor “Tenuta di Bibbiano”, and is also sponsored by the Municipality of Castellina in Chianti and the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico.

The setting is the splendid scenery between Castellina in Chianti and Bibbiano, amidst vineyards, hills and country dirt roads: extraordinary landscapes with a ‘slow living’ ethos, that can be appreciated running or walking.

There are three planned routes, all starting at 7pm: 22 kilometres with start and finish in Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti; 13 kilometres starting from the Tenuta di Bibbiano and arriving in Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti; a 8-kilometre walk starting from Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti and arriving at the Tenuta di Bibbiano.

The departures are scheduled at 7pm on Saturday 8th June; you can find all information on the FB page ‘Chianti Classico Trail e Mens Sana Runners’.

Registration here on web and on the day of the event at the Piazza del Comune in Castellina in Chianti.

Refreshments are provided along all the routes, race kits for all participants (delivered with the chip) and prizes for the first absolute and category winners; showers and changing rooms available at the sports facilities in Castellina in Chianti. Shuttles are also provided to reach the departure points or the changing rooms.
