Family Run – Run for the Whales


Those who don’t like running in a race, or at least prefer to do it in a non-competitive setting, can try their hand in a run/walk of about 4 km, along the path that follows the coastline at San Remo. The Family Run route is suitable for everyone, including children, grandparents and dogs on a lead.

Starting from the athletic track of San Remo, everyone can go along the approximately 3 km that separate it from the city center. A wonderful route that goes alongside the sea which is home to thousands of dolphins and hundreds of whales, and which, with a little luck, will even reward you with a sighting of one of these marvellous creatures, directly from the path. The arrival will be at Pian di Nave, beside the impressive recently restored Forte di Santa Tecla. Waiting for the participants, whether they are from the competitive race or from the family run, will be musicians and entertainers. It will also be possible to visit an exhibition on whales at the Santuario Pelagos, where spectacular pictures will give everyone the chance to learn about the beautiful marine creatures that inhabit the Western Ligurian sea.
