Milan women run to protest violence

14 May. StraWoman 7th edition of run.

Milanese women will put on their running shoes on 14 May for a non-competitive mini-marathon to protest against the violence appearing ever more frequently in the Italian media.

Two courses, of 5 or 10 kms will start at 10.00 in Lambro Park and end there at the StraWoman village offering a cool-down area, food stalls, music and prizes.

Athletes can sign up to “We run the world” on the official website until 13 May, or on the day from 08.00. Several sport equipment shops, including eight Decathlon outlets, are also offering to accept advance registration.

The registration – €10 in advance, €12 on the day – covers an official T-shirt and race number bib, a tote bag, an official participation medal, medical assistance and a snack at the end of the run. It also includes free entrance and a “royal buffet” at 19.00 that evening at the StraWoman party at Sio Café in Via Temolo 1.
