Milano Marathon

Milan’s most competitive race 

 

The 17th edition of Milan’s favourite race will be returning in April! Nearly 7,000 runners will participate in this year’s event on April 2nd.

 

The circular route starts in the centre of the city which was designed in collaboration with the iconic Ethiopian runner Haile Gebrselassie. Smoothness of the track and high velocity in the lanes have been at the forefront of planning to keep the marathon enjoyable for the racers as much as the onlookers. The track runs along some of the most beautiful architecture around the city including the Teatro alla Scala, the Arco della Pace and the Duomo.

 

It would be virtually impossible to miss out on the action if you are in the city over the month of April. The event injects energy into Milan and is something to make sure you catch!

 

The top ranked nation at the event is Kenya with thirteen 1st places, will they come out victorious once more at next year’s event? We will have to wait until April the 2nd to find out…
