The Gensan Romeo & Juilett Half Marathon, or as the Italians would say “Giulietta e Romeo”, is an annual event to celebrate the best things in life LOVE and RUNNING! 

Every year the event attracts thousands of runners, many who join the race in pairs. It is the second largest Italian Half marathon and fourth biggest running event in the country in terms of numbers of finishers. The course certified by FIDAL and officially measured by AIMS.

The Giulietta e Romeo Half marathon always takes place in February, as close to Valentine’s day as possible. Due to the timing in mid-February, the race gives a perfect opportunity to test yourself in an intermediate distance before joining longer distance races later on in spring.
