Lake Garda: the sound of the waves in your ears, a breathtaking view of the mountains, in the midst of the charming Italian lifestyle. The Lake Garda region is known as a hip sports region with countless possibilities. It is also popular in the running community.
As passionate runners and die-hard running experts, our hearts beat faster when we think of a running event on Lake Garda.
We followed this (im)pulse and took over the traditional event “Lake Garde Marathon” in 2020 in order to let the marathon flourish again with a sustainable, eventful concept with passion, a lot of experience and a spirit of innovation.

For two days in March every year, we create a legendary running experience on the north shore of Lake Garda. 3 routes, an incredible landscape and a diverse supporting program.

Thanks to the collaboration with the North Lake Garda region, the event will be even more attractive to the international running community, boasting a unique route that passes through some of the most emblematic places around Lake Garda and crosses the borders of Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto.

Planned as a “one-way street”, no section of the route is run more than once.

The novelties also include the start of Limone sul Garda and a route that will cross 3 different regions.

In addition to the classic 42 km run and the gentlest half marathon, there are two other innovative formats: LAKE GARDA 2 × 21, a relay competition for teams of two; and LAKE GARDA Kids, which offers the youngest runners the opportunity to run together while having fun.

A pasta party, two expo areas and a cheering zone round off the running experience and it is guaranteed that nobody will get bored.
