RunRivieraRun Half Marathon
from Varigotti (Finale Ligure) to Loano (Loano Marina), official distance of 21.97 kilometers.
of October 2020, starting at 9:30am, with the starting ling in the Malpasso Locality of Varigotti in Finale Ligure and will take runners to the finish line in the Loano Marina in Loano. This is a Bronze category, national competition.
This event was strongly desired by the Province of Savona, and in collaboration with the Finale Ligure Council, the Borgio Verezzi Council and the Pietra Ligure and Loano Council, it has been conceived of and organised by ASD RunRivieraRun.
This event is unique for its marvellously suggestive panorama, which is laid out over the 21,097 meter-half marathon circuit, starting from Finale Ligure and passing through the town of Verezzi, Pietra Ligure’s seafront and historical centre, touching all the coastal towns and villages along the way (Varigotti, Finalmarina, Finalpia and Finalborgo), before winding through Loano’s pulsing heart, its centre and finally concluding in the beautiful scenery of Loano Marina.
The RunRivieraRun Half Marathon, about to undertake its ninth edition, is now a bronze category event, and has been classified as an “International” event since 2015. This event is destined to become not only a great sporting competition, but also an event that marries sports and science, sports nutrition, sport as wellbeing, as health and movement that helps all of us live better.
RunRivieraRun isn’t just a race, it’s also the Village (the 24th of October), which will be held in the Santa Caterina Monumental Complex in Finalborgo, and is going to be the first “Running and Walking Festival”, hosting conventions, nutrition and athletic preparation tests, running material exhibitions, massages offered by osteopaths, physiotherapists and illustrious guests, above and beyond the standard bib and race pack pick-up.
There will also be two new additional races: The LA8 from Varigotti to Finalborgo, with a distance of about 8km; and The Queen Half Marathon Relay Race, with respective distances of 8 and 13 km (two-person race with the baton handover at Finalborgo), both non-competitive events.
“Everyone to the Finish Line, Everyone’s a winner” is RunRivieraRun’s slogan because all our runners, the second they cross the finish line are our winners and our stars.
