Which Italy 10k Will Inspire You?

Whether you are a newbie runner or a seasoned athlete, the Rome Legion Run might only be a 5k, but what it lacks in miles, it makes up for in fun. This down and dirty race is one that involves the entire team. Participants will jump, crawl, sprint, and race their way to the finish line as a team. Located in Rome, it is a great themed run that you will remember for a lifetime.

The Starmilano Half Marathon might be called a half marathon, but it also has a 10k that attracts over 50,000 participants a year. It is considered the fastest and best half marathon in Italy and has fierce competitors racing to beat one another and their own personal best. Take the slower track and register for the 10k. It is a great stepping stone to completing an Italy 10k in the future.

Although slightly more than a 10k, the Night Marathon, an 11k, is a great night time event that is something outside of the ordinary. The race starts at 8pm when most kids are heading to bed. And the streets of Venice host an event that feels more like a festival than a competition. 

If you have decided that an Italy 10k is your next destination, then find the one that inspires you, register, and start planning your departure!
