Lignano Sunset Run told by a runner
Maybe that's because spring is that special period when nature awakes, or maybe because the sunset has a unique appeal or even because runners run for passion... For these and other reasons the wait that anticipates Lignano Sunset Run is a big emotion.
On 18 May Lignano Sabbiadoro city offers to all the runners a unique opportunity to try the new track that is technical, fast and charming.
The departure is set in Lignano Pineta, from there you can run through some of the most suggestive spots of Lignano Sabbiadoro Municipality surrounded by the light of sunset.
We meet at 7.00 pm on Saturday 18 May. The colors choosen for the official Karhu tank top are not casual: yellow and light blue represent the colors of sun, sea and... our city.
This half marathon, choosen by over 1500 sport people, is a nice opportunity to mix running with a weekend with the family by the sea, as well as funny nights at the seaside with sport activity.
The runners of ADS Athletic Club Apicilia, the association that organizes the event, tell us more about Lignano Sunset Run.
Fulvio, Paolo, Cristian, Rolando, Patrizio, Italia, Cristina and Miriam are local experts and runners, for this reason they are the best people to tell us about the city and how beautiful it is to run here all year round but especially during the race on 18 May. We will follow our runners training during the Lignano Sunset Run and, if you like, you can run with them during the half marathon. Miriam in particular will run with you as a testimonial of Lignano Sabbiadoro!
Miriam, what are the best spots for running in Lignano? There are plenty of opportunities, right?
Yes, of course. Lignano offers a wide range of unexpected and unusual spots for running. You can choose among the most common locations like the seafront or the bycicle paths of the city. Moreover there are other interesting paths like the ones that cross the pinewood or the promenade along the lagoon.
What are your goals for 18 May race?
My first goal is to have fun and enjoy the panoramic track. Moreover I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to improve my personal time on the half marathon, indeed the fast track is validated by FIDAL.
What does running mean to you?
Running gives me feelings of freedom. While running I restore and leave behind all the stressful thoughts. It's a motivation to life, a "sprint" for the soul. Maybe that's the reason why for me the best momento to train is in the morning, as well Lignano Sunset Run setting in the evening light is so intense that makes it my favorite race at all.
We just have to say goodbye asking you to make an invitation to those who are still deciding to take part to Lignano Sunset Run.
Lignano setting is unique and deserves to be lived: while running along the sea, into the pinewood, along the lagoon and then near the lighthouse the feelings grow. When you cross the city centre and the tourist crowd welcomes and supports you it's so exciting. Excitement is part of this unique event organized in a runner-oriented city.
We will be there and you can run with us if you like: you can recognise us because of our yellow and blue Kahru tank tops (you can book them too till 15 April).
We wait you!
