Spring is on its way and summer is not far off. Very soon we'll have that daylight saving time conducive to runners' preparation. And the events prospected are getting nearer and nearer, acting as a countdown to the 30th Florence Marathon on 24 November. This promises to be a really special event, – we're already getting numerous and varied surprises ready that we will tell you about just as soon as they are finalized.

So, Happy Easter to all runners, and don't miss the up-coming events to which Florence Marathon lends technical organization:

14 April: Avon Running, a race for women only, the proceeds of which go to charity. For those who would like to return again to run along the roads of the center of Florence, there will be the 41th Look at Florence (Guarda Firenze) on Sunday, 5 May, together with the touristic walk for families with didactic route for children and adolescents. Then at the end of May, Dee Jay Ten, and lastly, the classic 74th St. John's Evening Run (Notturna di San Giovanni) on 22 June.

In the meantime, you can come and visit us when we're "away" next month. On 7 April we will be at the Berlin Half Marathon, at Paris Marathon and at the Milan City Marathon. On 14 April at the Vienna City Marathon, on 21 April at the Virgin London Marathon, the Internationl Nice Half Marathon and the Hamburg Haspa Marathon. Lastly on 28 April at the Dusseldorf Marathon.
