Friday 12 April at 7.30pm – Prato Campus Run- Mattatona, in association with LA MARATONINA INTERNAZIONALE DI PRATO
We couldn’t possibly miss out Prato Campus Run from this year’s Prato Campus Week program! The Run is a non-competitive activity that takes us either running or walking through the historical centre of the city.
For this edition, in collaboration with Polisportiva Aurora, Uisp di Prato and Asd Prato, we are presenting the “mattatona”, a 4km crazy run around the historical centre of the city with the last 100m of retro running (running backwards!). Participation is free and you’ll be rewarded afterwards with a Pasta Party!
8.30pm – Pasta Party
Following the Run, come along to the Pasta Party and stock up on your energy after the afternoon’s activities. The Pasta Party will be held in the internal courtyard at PIN – Polo Universitario di Prato.
REGULATIONS for the RUN
Participating in the run is absolutely free (registration required). It’s a recreational activity with the aim of increasing socialisation and interactions. Bright colors and fancy dress is very welcome and you can also choose to participate on wheels (baby prams and pushchairs, kids’ bikes, roller skates, etc.). The added twist is that the last 100m (right after the steps in Piazza dell’Università) are to be completed in Retro-Run – running backwards!
CAI Prato is kindly offering 3 free vests for “Da Piazza a Piazza”, a local event taking place on 4 and 5 May 2019. The vests will be presented as prizes to:
– first placed student from Monash University;
– first placed student from the University of New Haven;
– first placed student from the University of Florence.
Come and run with us!
