Get your running shoes on and race through the centre of Florence on May 5 during the Guarda Firenze 10km run. Starting at 9.30am in piazza Duomo, the route will take in piazza della Repubblica, Ponte Vecchio, Borgo San Jacopo, via dei Serragli, Porta Romana and many other places in the city centre, before heading uphill to Piazzale Michelangelo. For younger racers, there will be the Ginky Mini Guarda Firenze, a 2km run starting at the same time and place.


The races are non-competitive and open to all, and aim to promote a healthy lifestyle. See or call 055/5522957 for more information and to sign up.
