The Torino City Marathon is a journey through art and history in the city that was Italy’s first capital. Fast, or rather very fast, routes take marathon runners through the streets of the city centre and among palaces and historic monuments but also through parks, with their villages and castles, to the suburbs. The course passes by industries that have helped write Turin’s history, before returning to the centre and the finish line in the sumptuous Piazza Castello.
On 5 November three races will be held: the Torino City Marathon (42.195 km), the Torino City Half Marathon (21.097 km) and the Torino City Run (7 km). The race is organised by Team Marathon S.S.D. and Torino Road Runners A.S.D., with the support of the Regione Piemonte and the municipalities of Turin, Beinasco, Nichelino and Moncalieri. The event has always been a favourite for foreign marathon runners, who in addition to following their sporting passion have been able to appreciate the beauty of the area and sample the food and wine delights of the region.
There are active promotions on hotels and guided tours so you can fully enjoy both the journey and the race.
