In preparation for the long-distance running events (full marathon, half marathon), we organise several training runs per week. We offer some long training runs (usually a half marathon), while also convening some short runs (5-10 km) as well as interval and core stability training. Everybody is welcome to join the training sessions, even if you do not want to participate in running events. Keep an eye on the Facebook group ‘EUI Running Team’ and try it out!

The general purpose of the EUI running team is to prepare participants to run a Marathon – be it the annual edition of Florence Marathon (on the last Sunday in November) and Half-marathon in mid-April or another competitive Marathon world-wide (in previous years the EUI Running team participated in both the Berlin Marathon and the Athens Classical Marathon and the Artic Marathon on Spitzbergen). The club, however, also aims at introducing people to a healthy and challenging sport activity and training them for other less competitive races in spring and fall.
