S. Marinella - Perla del Tirreno Trophy (km. 9.5)
Prologue. Saturday night the Black Knight Army - Sir Giorgio, his insolent squire Massimo and the Black Knight - went to S.Marinella, a beautiful city on the sea, to run the 9.5 km. race. Here you can see the Odescalchi Castle in S.Marinella:
The Report. We thought to race near the sea on the flat promenade but we were wrong, the path ran at the borders of the city and was tough and hilly. All things considered (hills, poor age-groups prizes, heat, fast pack) I took the decision to make only a tempo-run, slowing down my usual racing pace.
