About Chianti Classico Marathon

Chianti Classico Marathon comes directly from a tradition of the 70s, when a group of friends living in the tiny village of Mercatale Val di Pesa (in Chianti Classico production area) started organizing this race. The peculiarity of it was the setting: not a dull flat itinerary, but on the contrary hills, fields, castles on the way.

From 1975 there were 20 editions, some of which had as many as 1000 participants! In 2016, the municipality of some towns of Chianti area decided that it was about time to go back to the healthy and genuine ideas: and there we go, Chianti Classico Marathon is back again, with all the dedication, the passion, but also the simplicity of which only Italians are capable

A race among one of the most stunning landscapes of the world: Chianti Classico. The routes will lead you across vineyards, fields, castles and little villages around Chianti. Starting from the little Mercatale Val di Pesa, we'll go downhill until the well-renowned Cantine Antinori. From there we'll go up again to the charming little borgo Badia a Passignano, Greve in Chianti and the Medieval Montefioralle. 

Wine bottles won't be missing as prices of the race obviously and no one can refrain from the traditional pasta party after the run! 
Come and join us!
