Stresa – 1st edition of the “Zoo Run”
Run for charity in the park of the Villa Pallivicino
Sunday 17 April 2016
In Stresa, they are getting ready for the first edition of the “Zoo Run”; a non competitive race which takes place entirely within the scenic zoological park of the Villa Pallavicino. The hilly off-road course of 5,5 km winds through the park where you can admire over 40 species of mammals and birds including cangaroos, zebras and cranes, other than the spectacular views of the villa and Lake Maggiore. For the children there will be a mini race of 1,2 km followed by a treasure hunt and a Nutella Party. All the proceeds will go to the Association Families of children with Down’s syndrome and the Stresa Red Cross. The registrations are open for everyone with a maximum 300 participants and the winners will receive a wooden medal carved by craftsmen from the Strona valley. Departure is set for 9.30 a.m.
