Marathon 42,195K

The first edition of the San Francesco Marathon will take place on Sunday, November 5th, 2023.

It is the culmination of a long organizational work that began in 2017 with the intention of uniting sports, friendship, and fraternity under the values of Francis. "I Bless You Life" is the message that will be launched during an internationally-attractive event.

REQUIREMENTS FOR FOREIGN ATHLETES

Registration

The appointment is for Sunday, November 5th, 2023 with the 42.195k road race. The race involves not only the body but also the mind and heart. Commitment, consistency, and discipline are some aspects that characterize the lifestyle of a runner. The race also expresses a depth that involves the spiritual dimension, which goes beyond the physical aspect and moves the desire, joy, and passion.

This event will not only be a sports event, but it will also try to unite running with solidarity. The registration will help support some aid projects of the Diocese of Assisi and the civil institutions of the territory, particularly for the most vulnerable.
