Milan: city of fashion, culture, design and sport.

The measures aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have not slowed down the sporting world but have changed the way people are able to participate in sporting events.

Milan continues to host outstanding global-level competitions, not only in football but also in other sports that are equally loved and as passionately followed, such as the Milano - Sanremo spring classic bicycle race, the Giro d'Italia, the Canoe World Championships in 2015 and the much-anticipated Winter Olympics in 2016.


In compliance with anti-Covid regulations, races are back on track !

The Charity Program, in which the official distance of 42,195 metres will be run on a fast 7.5 km circuit in a repeated loop, will gravitate around the City Life area, Milan’s dynamic and innovative new district. The departure from the starting line will be at 07 AM to enable the Charity relay race - which this year will be sponsored by Lenovo - to start at 10AM (with staggered starts until 4 PM). ‘Limited’ access to 2,500 teams. Departure from viale Boezio with the finish line in piazza Elsa Morante.

Last but not least, the third race format, Anywhere, is new for this edition and is expected to be replicated in future events, even after the end of the pandemic.

Any person, in any place around the world, will be able to participate in the relay and make their own charity contribution. The performances will be tracked by means of the dedicated App, or any GPS device, and uploaded to the event’s website.

If you wish to train for the race, we can recommend 3 running itineraries in the city created in collaboration with Generali Milano Marathon.



10 -12 settembre 2021

Milano si prepara ad ospitare l’ultramaratona non stop più lunga d’Europa, la cui prima edizione si è svolta nel 2014. Dopo l’interruzione dovuta all’epidemia in corso quest’anno l’iniziativa si pone l’ulteriore obiettivo di rappresentare un punto di svolta e di ripartenza per questo sport.

All’evento parteciperanno alcuni dei migliori atleti del panorama internazionale specializzati in ultramaratone che percorreranno un itinerario di 285 km in un tempo massimo di 54 ore, partendo dalla Darsena dei Navigli di Milano ed attraversando tre regioni italiane e 54 comuni per giungere infine al mare di Sanremo, meta finale del viaggio. Denominatore comune della maratona è l’acqua, elemento significativo che contraddistingue sia la partenza dalla Darsena di Milano, sia l’arrivo a Sanremo dove sarà necessario toccare l’acqua del suo mare per concludere definitivamente la gara.
