After a 2020 lived with the handbrake on, 2021 promises to be a year of great initiatives and opportunities that Ravenna Runners Club wants to seize to contribute to the relaunch of collective sporting activity in compliance with what will be the regulations in force on the various occasions that will arise. Here are the dates of the events scheduled for 2021 by the staff of the association, a calendar with interesting ideas and some really unmissable news, in addition to the grand finale of November with the Marathon that everyone hopes will follow those of recent years.
MAY 30 – RAVENNA MUSIC RUN
The year will open, if sanitary conditions permit and the combined effect of vaccines and regulations have had the desired effects, on Sunday 30 May 2021 with the first edition of Ravenna Music Run. Always attentive to the evolution of society and tastes, but above all always keen to launch new things, here is a new format that aims to combine two passions: sport and music. Developing the idea already widely rooted with the Ravenna Marathon, what will be proposed will be a 10 km, both competitive and recreational motor in order to be accessible to all, dotted along the route with “musical” points by bands, schools and groups. A path that will follow a common thread linked both to the different genres and to the decades that have marked the history of music.
SEPTEMBER 5 – RAVENNA PARK RACE
On Sunday 5 September, the third edition of Ravenna Park Race is scheduled, the event organized in the fascinating and unique path that unfolds between the San Vitale pine forest, the embankment on the sea and the Pialassa della Baiona with Trail Running and Eco Walking. A journey through small roads framed in a fairytale undergrowth, between the sea, canals, fishing huts, plants of rare beauty and birds of all species including the famous herons. Departure and arrival in Casal Borsetti, with transit through the territories of Porto Corsini and Marina Romea.
SEPTEMBER 26 – PINK RANNING
After a few days the second novelty. Sunday, September 26, appointment with Pink RAnning, a race “in pink”, but open to both sexes. On this occasion, sport will join the social as it has already happened many times in the past, with a clear and specific message. The event will in fact be organized with the involvement of Linea Rosa and its entire associative network to send a strong signal in the fight against violence against women. An event of national caliber designed to use the running channel as a sounding board for a problem that is increasingly difficult to combat and therefore to face with any type of initiative.
12, 13, 14 NOVEMBER – RAVENNA MARATHON CITY OF ART
Finally, here is the confirmation for the highly anticipated weekend of the Ravenna Marathon City of Art 2021 scheduled from 12 to 14 November with all the initiatives of its large container. Friday 12 the opening of the Expo, Saturday 13 the Family Run and Dog’s & Run, Sunday 14 the grand finale with Correndo Senza Frontiere, Good Morning Ravenna, Ravenna Half Marathon and of course the 22nd edition of the Ravenna Marathon City of Art. And with the advent of vaccines and a possible return to normal in the coming months, the optimism for an event in line with the last few years seems quite well founded.
Among the reports, it is right to highlight how the association has chosen not to continue with the initial hypothesis of proposing on Sunday 21 March the recovery of the Good Morning Ravenna 2020 canceled last 8 November. In recent weeks, a series of meetings have taken place with local institutions and the authorities in charge and all the realities involved have agreed that the hypothesized date does not offer the necessary security guarantees for the carrying out of such a well-attended event and which is based on socialization and the desire to be together. The Good Morning 2020 is therefore to be considered definitively canceled and the registrations collected will be automatically transferred to the 2021 edition of November 14th. Any single need in this regard can still be reported by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a few days the openings for registrations for each single appointment in 2021 will be announced!
