Lago Maggiore Marathon: enrollments numbers and few information

This Sunday October 16th, the Lake Maggiore will see more than thousands runners participating to the first edition of the Lago Maggiore International Marathon (LMM). This is the brother event of the more famous Lago Maggiore Half marathon, which is already in the top 10 Half Marathons in Italy. Although it is new, the LMM marathon is already recognized by AIMS as international competition, and it is a Boston Marathon Qualifier.

The course will see the departure and arrival from Arona, Verbania Pallanza, and will run  along the lake so dear to Stendhal. The new Lake Maggiore Marathon will be characterized by a particularly impressive track, full of panoramic points that will surely relieve the fatigue of the runners.

As curiosity, this is not the first time that a long run competition will take place Arona and Verbania: at the beginning of last century we had the so called Marathon "Arona - Pallanza", about 41 km. Dorando Pietri, the great athlete from Carpi, who later became famous at the London Olympics of 1908, was at the starting line but was forced to retire.

On Sunday, this link will be the one where to check the 2011 Lago Maggiore Marathon results.
