Imagine waking up early in an Autumn morning and meeting a group of people that is happy to run in the Tuscan countryside. The location of the running is special: the point of departure is Gaiole in Chianti, one of the most charming places in Tuscany. There are people that run/walk 6km (3,7miles), other that prefer a medium distance – 15 km (9,3 miles) and finally expert runners – 38 km (23,6 miles). The final prize for the participants is a bottle of Tuscan wine and later if you want you can taste truffles in a “Sagra del Tartufo” nearby.I don't know about you, but this is what I call a nice vacation! Healthy life, happy people and the perfect scenario... sounds like a dream? It's the first edition of L'Eroica running.
