Athletes enrolled in the Marathon will receive an official kit containing technical material and other promotional materials. Kits can be picked up from the appointed stand of the Marathon Expo after collecting race numbers.
The cloakroom service will be located at Piazza Santa Maria Novella in the apposite spaces divided in different groups corresponding to start numbers (available from 6.30 a.m.). Only bags provided by the Organization, and marked with the appropriate adhesive of your start bib number, will be accepted. Bags handed in will be deposited in the dedicated area by our personnel.
