Maratonina "del Campanone" di Lammari
The first Sunday of October makes for the perfet opportunity to test yourself with a running event in the country of Lammari: the 'Maratonina del Campanone'. This half marathon is open to everyone, amateur or professional athletes.
Head, feet and heart are the main ingredients of any sport event and the Maratonina is no exception: a 'short' run where individuals and team can compete for the best result. If for the most experienced this is just a training opportunity, for the amateurs is a long stroll in the countryside of Capannori.
The run covers a 7 km circuit to be completed three times, and along the way a few refreshment points will be set up, so you do not havr to worry if you feel your energy bar going down.
Since 1994 the sport club 'Il Campanone' promotes the half marathon, usually held at the beginning of every October. The event has seen a growing number of participants over the years, peaking over 300 competing participants.

All in all, a route suiting everyone's needs, being the desire to train for other running events, or to enjoy the countryside at a slow pace while chatting with friends.
Runners willing to challenge themselves and other athletes or walking enthusiasts: no matter what you are, tie your shoes because the Maratonina is waiting for you.
