A MARATHON TO CELEBRATE THE SPRING
At the "Merano-Lagundo" cross-country race on 29 April, Marlene® apples will be present in a big way
What could be more exhilarating than a cross-country run surrounded by hundreds of blossoming apple trees? That’s the prospect awaiting the participants of the upcoming Merano-Lagundo Half Marathon, the traditional sporting event that celebrates the arrival of spring in the mountainous landscape of South Tyrol.
During the race – of which Marlene® apples will be a featured sponsor – athletes and enthusiasts will compete on a 21 kilometre course through the mountain valleys where the VOG Consortium’s apples grow. And for those who love open air sport but are not ready for such a physically demanding course, this year there’ll be a welcome novelty: the main marathon will be accompanied by a second event, the Merano Run4Fun, a non-competitive run for adults and juniors over 12, over a 4 Km course.
The athletic afternoon will be followed by the Marathon Party – the Festa della Maratona – an ideal way to conclude a healthy day by savouring the pleasures of gastronomy, music and entertainment.
We’ll be waiting for you!
