Bettona Country Run Half Marathon
(Hoping this will happen again in 2017)

The wonderful people who organize Bettona in Shape added the Bettona Country Run Half Marathon to the list of activities to their weekend dedicated to fitness in Bettona. More than 500 runners participated in last year’s event making it a huge success. The run starts at the edge of the central piazza and then, bang, they’re off  down the Corso Marconi, out the Porta Roma, and into the countryside, through the hills to the Cinque Cerri, past the Partigiani monument and down through surrounding villages. The participants said it was a wonderful run and each were presented with a commemorative medal for their participation.

(Oh, and I got to design and illustrate the poster and other graphics for the event.)
