The Generali Miramar Young, the free event within the Trieste Running Festival, organised by Apd Miramar in collaboration with the municipality of Trieste on Thursday 2 May, confirms its success, featuring two thousand kids who enjoyed themselves running in piazza Unità d’Italia.
All kids received a kit that included the Generali sack, the official t-shirt and the bib while a medal was given to them at the finish line.
Most young runners came with their class mates because whole classes signed up for the race. But there were also individual entries of kids who were registered by their parents. Along the course thousands of families cheered for the runners, often at their first experience. The youngest, 3 years old, had to run for only 50 metres. The distance increased according to the age.
