COURSE: The marathon starts at Castello di Brolio, a 12th century castle in the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti. The route loops past historic villages, farms and vineyards. As has been commented by one runner, it can be said it will be like running through a museum and admiring paintings and photographs where only the frame is missing. The finish is in the village of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The course is very tough and times are quite slow.
The half-marathon starts in the village of Castelnuovo Berardenga and is mostly run on trails looping through farms, villages and vineyards. This hilly and very challenging course is a good test for any runner.
