The "Puccini Marathon - Carnival Marathon", now in its 14th edition, is a male and female competitive half marathon on a distance of 21.0975 kilometers.
The Puccini Marathon or Carnival Marathon will close the 145th edition of the Viareggio Carnival, starting from the heart of the Port and along the splendid Art Nouveau Promenade with arrival in the stadium, where the Soccer Carnival Cup takes place.
Not only a half marathon, but also a non competitive walk of 5 or 10 km between the sea, the port and the Carnival atmosphere with many prizes.
The strength of the Puccini Marathon is undoubtedly the location and the period of the event, held in the beautiful City of Viareggio during the Carnival period, celebrated with great parades of allegorical papier-mâché cars.
The marathon starts from the port area, the heart of boating and shipbuilding in Viareggio, and from there it runs through the most beautiful spots of the city: the Pineta park in the Southern part, the Burlamacco Canal, the Art Nouveau promenade the day after the end of the 2018 edition of the Viareggio Carnival, with the city still festively decorated, the Viale Europa with the bathing establishments where every summer thousands of tourists from all over the world arrive and finally Viale dei Tigli, a splendid tree-lined avenue in the nature that connects Viareggio to the district of Torre del Lago Puccini.
