Fly away Mercury!
This is the motto of the 2023 Florence Marathon.
And with wings on his feet Mercury runs, no, rather he flies over the town, touching the fundamental points of the route shown on the dial of the medal:
-km 2 “The English Cemetery”
-km 9 Institute of Aeronautical Military Sciences in the Cascine Park
-km 20 Ponte Vecchio
-km 22 Basilica of Santa Croce
-km 30 Athletics Stadium
-km 39 “Volognana” Tower of the Bargello Palazzo
-km 41 Arnolfo’s Tower, Palazzo Vecchio
A perfect circle, just like our journey.
And at its center, Mercury, the God of athletics, symbolizing all you runners, ready to conquer it with your passion and determination!
