Race course description

EN-Tracciato 10km_HQ


It’s the big news of this edition, a 10 km competitive road race running in the heart of Padua.

A way to meet even those who are not ready to face more challenging distances yet, but want to experience the agonistic climate anyway and, at the same time, want to immerse themselves in the beauty of a city to explore… running!

The starting and the finishing point of the “10 km Rise and Run”, not by chance, coincide with the finish line of the main race: the extraordinary scenery of Prato della Valle, Europe’s second biggest world squares and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful ones.

The route runs through some of the most characteristic point of Padua: it passes near the enchanting Piazza del Castello, through the rivers to the Ponte della Saracinesca – where the refreshment point is located – and then it returns to the city center enjoying the views that give the Duomo, Palazzo della Ragione and the Basilica of Sant’Antonio, symbol of Christianity.
