The Christmas air begins to spread as Pisa prepares to welcome thousands of runners from different countries at the start of the marathon under the watchful eye of the most famous tower in the world. Less than a month to go, 1063 SSDARL, the organizing company, is working hard XXIII Cetilare Pisa Marathon which will be staged on December 18 on a measured AIMS-World Athletics and Fidal course. Three distances, marathon, the Pisanina half marathon and 4 miles, all on a flat and fast course, between art, culture, a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea and one in the Arno before returning to the Campo dei Miracoli.
SOLIDARITY – In Pisa as well as in the most important cities of the world, the marathon has always been synonymous with solidarity. Also for 2022 the commitment of the organizing company towards the weakest is bending over backwards. The solidarity of the athletes who participate in the XXIII Cetilare Pisa Marathon it can be addressed to various projects such as Progetto Homeless, Rare Partners, Mondobimbi and Club Scherma di Ciolo.
HOMELESS PROJECT – Guests of the “Progetto Homeless” facility in via Conte Fazio (managed for the Health Society of the Pisana Area, by the Cooperatives “Il Symbol” and “Arnera”), assisted by four operators, will be involved in the organization of the Pisa Marathon. From 6 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon on Sunday, they will take turns in the garrison around the perimeter of the Homeless Project structure in via Conte Fazio: they will take care of the arrangement of the barriers, traffic management and will give the athletes directions on the route. Furthermore, the CTP2 Standing Events Committee, of which Progetto Homeless is a part, has organized activities for children in the courtyard of the center of via Conte Fazio in order to entertain them while waiting for the marathon.
