Montefortiana Walk
Introduction to Montefortiana's Walk

The "Walk of 18.000"begins the morning at 8.30am and the photos aren't enought to confirm the amazing partecipation to this sporting event. With such numbers, Montefortiana place itself as one of the largest athletic sporting event in the world.

Thanks to the perfect organization and the refreshment stands this walk/race fits perfect for the occasional runner and for the family walk on the Monteforte's countryside.

The eight refreshment stands arranged on the 4 courses are properly the main assets of this event. At this stands are prepared and consumed huge quantity of food and drinks, i.e. at the first refreshment stand every year are consumed 300 litres of milk, 200 of chocolate, 200 of hot wine, and in Soave are consumed beyond 1.500 kg of potage.

Additionaly, in the stands there're also simple and fundamental food and drinks like marmelade, biscuits, the, orange, lemons, and so on.

The GSD Valdalpone De Megni is the group of people behind the scenes of Montefortiana, and each year from 1976 it's capable to organized this huge sporting event.
The "GRUPPO SPORTIVO DILETTANTISTICO VALDALPONE DE MEGNI" was born in 1973 and, in the weekend in which the Montefortiana takes place, it can count 800 volunteers who guarantee the regular execution of the event. Fundamental to the group is the aid of the sponsors, of the citizens, and the massive participation of the guests.

From 1989 Montefortiana is twin with New York City Marathon, and every year the cooperation between this 2 sporting event is sealed by mutual exchanges from various point of views.
We hope also this year you will find in Monteforte the warmth and kindness that has characterized this event in the past editions.
