Races shorter than anticipated

Yes, there are races shorter than anticipated. I am not referring to the case you go out for a 10K, and you end tired or drained after 5-6K. Or, even worse, when you arrive home with your GPS tracking system stating you’ve run 9.89 km. I usually run an extra block to have a round

Verona Marathon

Italy is a country famous for its art, food, wine, history… but not many know how interesting is the amount of running events organized in my country. A list offering many options for who wants to combine the enjoyment of the elements listed above, with the sense of accomplishment of crossing a finish line. Oddly

What are the feelings behind when you run an event? When you run in an event, like an half marathon, or a full one, you are alone. Alone with your thoughts, your heartbeat, your pace, your breath. When you run in an event, you are not alone. You are part of a big snake, departing

My first race in the Autumn season was the biggest running event in the Baltic area, the Tallinn Marathon. It was a hard choice between two races for a Libra, but at the end, Tallinn won against the Vilnius Marathon, thanks to its superb homepage, Facebook and Instagram sites. They used these media for daily

The Helsinki City Running day is an event, usually in May, organized in the Finnish capital. It includes several races, for all type of participants. There are in fact full marathon, half marathon, a 5K walking or running event and a mini marathon for kids. A differentiating factor of this event is the possibility, for

Review of Edinburgh Marathon Festival May is a month when the choice of the right running event can be complicated. In some locations, summer is already kicking in, and temperatures become challenging. On the other hand, in May the running season at high latitudes is blooming, giving some interesting choices. The Edinburgh Marathon Festival fits

Amsterdam Marathon & Half Marathon

I strongly recommend the Amsterdam Marathon event (sponsored by TCS with a long lasting partnership) especially for a group journey, and for various good reasons: not only Amsterdam is an amazing european capital, that can satisfy… all kind of appetites (sex, drugs… and rock and roll! but also art, landscapes, food and nightlife).
