When it comes to Bolgheri, your thoughts probably turn to the beauty of the Etruscan Coast, but this Tuscan village is much more than that. Here you can discover the spectacle of the Tuscan countryside, which will delight you with its incredible cultural and natural treasures.
By car, on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, this region offers a myriad of opportunities, especially if you are looking to immerse yourself in a centuries-old culture immersed in beauty.
Tuscany is a land rich in events, including the Bolgherirun, which for several years has attracted hundreds and hundreds of people who want to participate in this unique race. Here are the characteristics of one of the most important events.
An event that repeats itself: Bolgherirun 2020
On the 25 and 26th of April, the appointment with the Bolgherirun will be renewed again this year, a race that, like every year, never loses its charm as it takes place among places that have great historical importance and among landscapes that are known throughout the world and that will leave you with a memory that is difficult to erase.
Registration will be limited and only 500 people will be able to take part in this race, which has two souls: on the one hand, the playful side, where participants live this experience without a real competitive spirit, and on the other hand, the motor aspect, because the real protagonist is movement and the desire to have fun.
The 21 km race starts from the main square of Castagneto Carducci, famous for its artistic and historical beauty. It continues along Via Bolgherese and reaches Viale dei Cipressi, known to most people because it was immortalised in the famous ode by Giosuè Carducci "Davanti San Guido".
Then it continues to Bolgheri.
Leaving the characteristic village, participants will be greeted by an immense landscape of vineyards and olive groves, typical of the Tuscan countryside.
The 9 km route for walkers is the easiest because it is entirely flat and on an asphalt road, with only short stretches of dirt road.
The prize-giving ceremony will take place in Piazza del Popolo in Castagneto Carducci, where there will also be a festival of bread and oil.
Moreover, special attention is given to children, with workshops, activities and snacks.
Bolgherirun2020 è an event that allows you to discover, while having fun, the most beautiful corners of Tuscany!
