Chianti ecomarathon: Sport & Wine
Chianti Ecomarathon now reached its 14th edition, it has become a nationally known event thanks to the beauty of its trails, and numerous activities organized during the festival. Every year in the middle of October runners of Chianti Ecomarathon will have chance to race in the charming Tuscan countryside and especially in one of the most scenic and renowned region: the Chianti.
This year the trails of the Chianti Ecomarathon are numerous and suitable for everyone:
The Classical Chianti Ecomarathon for experts – trail of 42 km – There are no big climbs but it is a constant up and down on gentle slopes. The highest point is 627 Mt and the lowest 206 Mt. A quick race, an average of 30 minutes less than a normal race track, but very muscular. Most of the trail is on gravel road and field path, through the vineyards of Arceno Farms and Felsina, and a spectacular avenue of cypresses. The starting line will be at 9.30 from the BROLIO CASTLE.
The Chianti Classico Trail 21 Km – it normally hasa route starting and finishing in Castelnuovo Berardenga in the heart of the festival indeed. Easy and not bumpy path without major ascents is suitable for those who want to prepare an autumn marathon where the clock works as feedback and does not dictate the pace at km. Starting from Castelnuovo Berardenga.
The Luca Trail 13 km – easy and short trail, that does not weigh on physical performance, but will increase the beauty of the route and the scenery! It is an easy path for everyone both as background and as slope: the maximum sectionfor 300 Mt up to 700 Mt in length without steep slopes.
If you like more walking than running you could join the Ecopasseggiata (walk) – 10 Km, with a nice route in the Chianti countryside. The starting point will be from Piazza Marconi in CastelnuovoBerardenga. This route is suitable for all people who are used to walking in the city or on the beach and who are willing to take a walk in the beautiful Tuscan countryside also with the support of two refreshments and medical assistance. No limitation in entry and no cost.
Also for walking lovers…. but more challenging, there will be the ARCENO NORDIC WALKING: a trail of 11 Km dedicated exclusively to this sport, which has become very popular here in Tuscany and all over the countries. It is starting from the beautiful. Castelnuovo Berardenga (SI) along the stunning gravel roads that characterize this amazing region of Tuscany, Chianti, on the way back to Castelnuovo you will enjoy a sunset over Siena that you will not ever forget!
The Chianti Ecomarathon roads are endless and suitable for everybody…sportive or non-sportive. There is one by the slower tone called “Emotions through cellars” and seems to be made for lovers of good food without forgetting the well-being of living outdoors. The event is scheduled in CastelnuovoBerardenga (SI), when from the morning you may decide to follow two winery tours of 7 km to discover some of the most prestigious farms of the Chianti region.
