Among the Firenze Marathon 2018 events, the HUAWEI 3x7km Firenze Charity Run Relay was certainly noteworthy. The first year of its existence, the event hosted over 300 teams and 900 athletes – a true success in terms of numbers and enthusiasm. The event was an innovative way to involve the city of Florence and provide charitable donations to the various organizations involved. The Mauro Pieroni Trophy was destined for the charitable organization with the largest number of participants.

Emergency received the trophy. All of the funds collected during the event were distributed to the over 40 charities involved. Each relay team, made up of three people, had the possibility to choose which organization they wanted their funds to go to. The Firenze Marathon organization is pleased to have been able to use our passion for running to facilitate the collection of charitable donations to benefit the many organizations involved in this event.
“Now that we are beginning to plan our activities for 2019” – underlines Firenze Marathon President Giancarlo Romiti – “I would like to thank the associations that received donations of over EUR 4000, as well as the 285 relay teams that registered and contributed to the charitable projects of each organization. The HUAWEI 3x7k Firenze Charity Run Relay’s success in its inaugural year should encourage all of the associations to register for the next edition, which will take place on November 23, 2019. All of the participating organizations have the opportunity to spread their message via the Firenze Marathon website, social media, and all related communication methods. Registration will begin in March, and we hope to reach 1000 relay teams. In order to reach such a high number of participation, we want to involve all those associations present in Florence, and Tuscany. There is no need for any medical certificate, and registration is open to all. We hope to see you all here for this wonderful charitable event!”
