Firenze Marathon 2017: Ginky Family Run and Huawei Firenze Marathon Clap Contest

Registration for the Ginky Family Run, the shortened race open to all that takes place simultaneously with the Asics Firenze Marathon on November 26 is now open. There are also just a few days left to participate in the Huawei Firenze Marathon Contest, the competition for musical groups that will support the marathon participants.

The Ginky Family Run is back again this year, renewed and enhanced, consisting of a 2km minirun through Florence’s historic city center, beginning and ending in Piazza della Repubblica, just 50 meters from Piazza Duomo, where the marathon will start and end. The Ginky Family Run begins at 9:00 am, just following the start of the marathon which begins at 8:30 am. Waiting for the marathoners to return, this run is a great way to spend the morning in the city for athletes’ supporters or families with small children, and to take in some of Florence’s most beautiful monuments.
Participants will receive an elegant Asics brand t-shirt with the Firenze Marathon logo and the same design that will be on the marathon medal that adorns the neck of all marathon finishers. The race will end with refreshments in Piazza della Repubblica, the square that was once the center of the ancient Roman city, accompanied by stands and gazebos for sponsors, information and other entertainment.
Registration for the Ginky Family Run is now open and online at Rules are also there, and soon registration will be available at various sites throughout the city. At the end of the event, everyone will head to Piazza Duomo to wait at the finish line for the Asics Firenze Marathon 2017 athletes.

Admissions for the Asics Firenze Marathon 2017 edition Huawei Firenze Marathon Clap Contest are also open. The wave of energy made possible by musical and artistic stands set up along the entire race route to cheer the athletes on and entertain the public is accepting applications. The major change this year is that the Clap Contest will be supported by Huawei, multinational worldwide leader in telecommunication, which will lend its name to the title Huawei Firenze Marathon Clap Contest. Huawei is a very important new Firenze Marathon partner. The initiative, as in past years, is also supported by the Comune di Firenze’s Culture and Sport Commission, presided over by Maria Federica Giuliani.
The Huawei Firenze Marathon Clap Contest is a truly special competition open to music, theater, dance, street art, single or group performers, and to whoever wants to use their own creativity to excite, encourage, and sustain those that on November 26 will run the Firenze marathon. The first step is to be one of the groups selected to perform along the race course (at least 30 spots). Then, those selected can compete for prizes valued at hundreds of euro, and possibilities for auditions and invitations to perform on tv and radio.
RDF, Lady Radio, Obihall, PRG and Albatravel are all contributors to the event. Registration ends on October 28. Rules are available at
