Grand Tour in Valdichiana - 1st marathon in step

A piedi lungo l'antica Via Romea / Piazza Grande ritrovo ore 6.30, partenza ore 7.30

Sunday, May 13th.

You can walk in history, immerse yourself in the slow pace of nature and, with the return of spring, rediscover the perfumes carried by the wind, the charm of the outdoor bivouac and the traditional flavors of the area. The incipit fits perfectly to condense the meaning of the 1st Valdichiana Marathon, organized by the GT Valdichiana association, which, on May 13th, will gather many trekking and culture enthusiasts or, more simply, recreational and recreational walks. , to cover an Aretine stretch, the one from Arezzo to Cortona, of the ancient Via Romea. The "Melior Via", as defined by the monk Alberto in the Annales Stadensis, trampled over the centuries by groups of pilgrims, coming from Northern Europe and Italy, and headed to Rome to pray the sacred symbols of Christianity. A long journey in time and space, not infrequently adventurous and full of pitfalls, considering the times, but so much was the fervent devotion. Today, marked by a tourist function and adequately supported by signage, wi-fi areas and satellite mapping, it can be undertaken, albeit in the reduced Marathon route, with much more security but still, as then, relying on the heart and to the legs as is appropriate to today's "travelers" who, in the "journey", seek an immersive experience, outside the convulsive rhythms of everyday life. A way to reappropriate the history and culture of the area, to encourage the wellbeing of body and spirit but also to revive, as on this occasion, an idea of ​​sustainable mobility that reduces as much as possible, in favor of future generations, negative effects on the environment. So once you start from Piazza Vasari, duly provided with water and food, and after choosing the most congenial route - that up to Sant'Andrea a Pigli for children and families (10 Km), up to Castiglion Fiorentino (24 Km) or up to Cortona (42 Km) - you can comfortably return to the city by train and bus, thanks also to the support of road maps and shuttles made available by the organizers of the event which, moreover, did not fail to dedicate a special chapter to the gastronomy of the local supply chain preparing different points along the route.
