L'Eroica running

Do you remember when we told you about L'Eroica, Tuscany's retro bike race? It was held in the Chianti area on Sunday October 6, but this is not the topic of this post. Let’s talk about its little sister: L’Eroica running! Seeing that L'Eroica was a great success, the organization board decided to promote the preservation of the Tuscan gravel roads (that is the original aim of L'Eroica retro bike race) also with a side event dedicated to running lovers.

From this year, then, the formula provides both routes suitable for competitive (Marathon and Ultra Marathon) and non-competitive people (Nordic walking with chopsticks). These dirty roads are perfect for sports and gastronomy fans. The fourth edition of L'Eroica running will take place in Gaiole in Chianti on November 3rd. The meeting point for all members is scheduled for Sunday, November 3rd at 7am at the Ex Cantine Ricasoli in Gaiole in Chianti.
