Milan City Marathon: 28 November 2004
I read a lot beforehand about the 'best ever tee-shirt' for this event -- true .. if you like shocking pink collars & cuffs!! Overall, however, this is definitely a great European winter event and highly recommended. Around
8,000 runners took part this year. The race started at the Piazza Duca D'Aosta (Central Station) and finished at the picturesque Piazza Duomo, with a real city streets course looping around central Milan. One drawback was the use of several 'hairpins', where you run up one side of the road while your leaders/followers run down the other (OK once, but it seemed to do this a lot). This is one of the fastest courses I have experienced, with good pre, during and after race facilities, including great, sponge, water and Isotar points every 5km . Spectators looked bemused, rather than supportive, so expect a generally quiet run. The event was well organised and good value for money. Weather conditions on the day were perfect for marathon running, cold but sunny with cloudless skies.
