The 7th edition of the Castles Run is coming up and this year has a lot to offer. Thanks to the initiative of ASD Promorun and collaboration with the City of Trieste and the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region, the FIDAL-certified 10-kilometer road race is looking more exciting than ever. Mark the date: October 15.
This edition is made even more special by the introduction of new title sponsor and technical partner Joma, a recognized brand in the sports world.
Internationality and Competitiveness
The level of the race will be raised by the presence of athletes participating in the 1st International Road Race Running Match U23, an event that serves as a prelude to the 2024 European Athletics Championships in Rome. More than 100 young athletes from over ten different foreign federations will be in attendance.
Not just competition! The Castles Run also offers the Non-Competitive Ten, an event open to all, and the Family Run 8 km, designed to promote a healthy and inclusive approach to sports.
All registrants will receive a signed Joma technical T-shirt embellished with the motto “Yes, We Run,” which embodies the passion and pride toward running.
“With the entry of Joma, the event gains an additional level of prestige,” said Silvia Gianardi, president of ASD Promorun. “We are excited about the partnership with an international brand like Joma and the opportunity to host world-caliber athletes.”
The big heart of the Castles Race is also reflected in its commitment to the Burlo Garofolo Resusci Junior Foundation. Donations can be made online or at bib pickup.
