On Sunday 10 and 17 March at 10.00 athletes can participate in a series of free and personalized trainings, which take place at Parco delle Cave (via privata Cancano) and at Idroscalo (via Circonvallazione Idroscalo 51). Athletic experts prepare professional (and non) runners to this sportive event.
The subscription fees for the half marathon go from €30 for those who apply before 11 March to €35 for those who apply after 12 March; €12 for the Stramilano of the 50.000 and the Stramilanina and include a T-shirt, a number-plate and a copy of the official magazine.
