half marathon Corsica 2016: Porto Vecchio


Imagine this scene: a wonderful island, your favourite sport, roads and trails overlooking breathtaking panoramas near the beautiful sea of Corsica south coast. If, after reading these words, you’re taking suitcase and running shoes, maybe the half marathon of Porto Vecchio, which will take place on October 23rd, 2016, is a great idea for you.



The half marathon of Porto Vecchio is divided into:

  1. Running 21,1 kilometers;
  2. Running 10 kilometers;
  3. Foot race 8 kilometers.

It’s one of the most spectacular race that you will ever see: starting point in the Porto Vecchio, arrival in Marina di Santa Giulia; between these two points, you will run near some of the most beautiful beaches of Corsica, such as the famous Palombaggia.


…and not only

Because Corsica in autumn can offer you an ideal place for a very, very pleasant holiday: the colours and the scents of this season, the tastes and the traditions to discover, ancient and suggestive castles, small villages on the mountains or on the coast.
