Trail Running in Tuscany

by Maria E. Bellini

We’ve revamped our “Selection of Tuscan Trail Races” which we first published back in October.

Of all of Italy’s 20 regions, Tuscany is possibly the one which is best known worldwide.

Many Italian cities are famous in their own right, if we think of places like Venice, Rome, Milan and Naples. However we may not be aware of which region they are geographically. By the way – Venice is in the Veneto, Rome in Lazio, Milan in Lombardy and Naples in Campania. The city of Florence is located in the region of Tuscany, as is Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca.

We give you a small selection of 2019 Trail running events across the region, there are plenty more, so please consult our full calendar.

Never ceasing to marvel at what’s at the summit of a hill, or around the bend along the trail, she loves using trail running as a means to explore nature, contemplation and Italy.
