Each year more than 6,000 athletes take on the winding streets
of Florence in the annual Florence Marathon. The 26-mile (42km)
long race sets off from the Piazzale Michelangelo and crosses the
Ponte alla Vittoria. Runners then follow a course through the Parco
delle Cascine, Piazza del Duomo and Piazza Signoria before the race
ends at Piazza Santa Croce in the centre of town.
