The appointment is on Sunday, November 5, 2023 with the approximately 5 km non-competitive road walk/run, a collateral event to the first marathon in the city of Assisi dedicated to Saint Francis.
"Vieni con Me" (Come with Me) is open to everyone and has been designed for families, companions, and anyone who wants to take part in a day of celebration and sports. The start is always from the Basilica of San Francesco of Assisi and the finish is at the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli.
The route winds along the primary road of the Franciscan itineraries, passing through the cobblestone road that connects Assisi to Santa Maria. The road links the two main places of devotion to the Saint, uniting them in a single pilgrimage itinerary. On a path of probable Roman origin, this road already connected the city to the small chapel of Porziuncola at the foot of the hill at the time of Saint Francis.
"Vieni con Me" involves not only the body but also the mind and heart. It is a run or walk that also expresses a depth that involves the spiritual dimension, which goes beyond the physical aspect and that moves desire, joy, and passion.
This event will not just be a sports event, but it will try to unite participation, running, and solidarity. Registration will help support some aid projects of the Diocese of Assisi and the civil institutions of the area, particularly for the most vulnerable.
The registration fee is set at 6 euros.
