The Marathon Mass Returns

Among the events that distinguish the long weekend leading up to the Firenze Marathon, the Marathoner's Mass returns, an initiative that takes place for its fifth consecutive year. It will take place at the Santa Maria Novella church on Saturday, November 25 at 6:00pm.

This year the High Mass will be held by Monsignor Melchor Sanchez de Toca, the Vatican's Culture and Sport undersecretary, marathoner, and president of Athletica Vaticana, the team with four representatives participating in the Firenze Marathon this year. The event will be open to the public, with particular opportunities for guided vists of the basilica (4:00pm / 5:30pm) reserved for those who show their race bib, and their friends and family.
