The event in a few words

Let's head to Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น, to discover the stunning Lagoon of Marano, a must-visit spot in the Northeast of the boot ๐Ÿ‘ข, near the border with Slovenia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ. Weโ€™re getting ready for an amazing run in the province of Gorizia, in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia ๐ŸŒž: the Mytho Marathon in Grado ๐Ÿ˜. A wonderful city event that will take you along the seaside ๐ŸŒŠ for several kilometers.

No, itโ€™s not a lie we say this event offers 8 different distances ! Marathon runners will have plenty of company, and even dogs ๐Ÿ• are invited to the Mytho Marathon, for the Dog Run, a 3.5 km race! The other races are more traditional: a 5.5 km "Eco Run", a 6.5 km "Family Run" ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง, a 7 km "Night Run" ๐ŸŒ›, a 10 km "Nordic Walk" ๐Ÿฅพ, a half marathon, a 30 km "Run" ๐Ÿ’ช, and the legendary 42 km marathon, which can be run solo or in relay! ๐Ÿ‘Š

If youโ€™re not familiar with this maritime region, youโ€™re in for a pleasant surprise.

The town of Grado is often considered a prelude to Venice โณ! But the magic doesnโ€™t stop with the race; once youโ€™ve given your all on the course, you can truly relax and enjoy yourself ! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Grado is renowned for its thermal baths and is nicknamed "L'Isola del Sole" (The Island of the Sun) โ˜€๏ธ. Such nicknames are always a good sign ๐Ÿ˜…. Italy has a strong thermal spa culture ๐ŸŒซ๏ธ. You can unwind in spas ๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™‚๏ธ and then indulge in the delicious local cuisine hidden in the corners of the town ๐Ÿ. Itโ€™s the perfect time to explore must-see sites that will leave you with wonderful memories! ๐ŸŒฑ

If you want to venture beyond Grado and discover the province, just ask! This area boasts many regional gems ๐Ÿ‘‘, including the 11th-century Castle of Gorizia, the Regional Nature Park of the Corno Valley, and even Venice, which is less than 2 hours away by car ๐Ÿš—. This time of year, there are fewer tourists... and mosquitoes ๐ŸฆŸ. You could also take a boat and explore the nature reserve of the Lagoon of Marano, which has about thirty islands. In short, running is great, but discovering new (and beautiful) places beyond the race is fantastic too! ๐Ÿคฉ

With the Mytho Marathon, youโ€™ll enjoy the perfect combination of sport and culture ๐ŸŒ.
