Just in case anyone is interested the Turin Marathon in Italy is free this year for anyone who hasn't run it before. The race is on Sunday 13th April but you have to enrol before 16th March. The course is one of the fastest in Italy - a lot of people do PB's. They even give you a goodies bag full of food at the end, also free. The only thing you don't get is the official T-shirt but apparently it's on sale at 5 Euro.
You can get more information in English and do on-line enrolment at www.turinmarathon.it
Of course you still have to get there and sleep for a night or two so it won't work out that cheap.
So maybe see you there.
