BRUNELLO CROSSING is an event that was started by a group of sports enthusiasts and lovers of the Montalcino territory who got together and developed an idea that goes beyond the 44km, 23km, and 13km competitive races. There will also be a 13km non-competitive race and guided tour of wineries with a chance to try local specialties. On Sunday, there will be the Runners’ Lunch as well as several rest stops along both competitive and non-competitive routes highlighting the connection between sport, territory, and wine…obviously the finest!
The 2017 and 2018 editions both sold out two weeks before the race, giving us the proof that we were on the right path, getting positive feedback from both participants and the press.
We tried not to neglect the high technical/competitive profile of all the routes and participating athletes as well as the quality of services connected to the event, which created a pleasant and collaborative atmosphere.
There were many institutions, public and private, which contributed to successful previous editions.
The City Administration that backed us and helped right from the start; the Consorzio di Brunello di Montalcino that acted as a bridge between the registered runners and Brunello makers; the Municipal Police, Carabinieri, Misericordia, and Civil Protection that guaranteed a completely safe event.
The high profile of the main sponsors that, with their support, not only made this event possible, but also certified the quality and decorum of Brunello Crossing.
At this point, all that’s left to do is invite you to participate in one of our competitive races or non-competitive walks on February 10th, 2019 and guided tours of the Brunello di Montalcino wineries on February 9th.
