Organiser's Description

Welcome to The Truffle Shuffle - an 8km fun run through Italy's unspoilt Umbrian countryside.

The Truffle Shuffle is a race designed for you and your family to explore the beauty of Umbria whilst sampling local delights during one of the area`s most celebrated and established food festivals, Festa del Bosco in Montone.

This race is a chance for a great weekend getaway combining two of life's most rewarding pleasures, exercise and food. If you are like us and like food and wine, the Festa del Bosco is the perfect way to sample traditional Italian cuisine after doing a little run through unspoilt Italian countryside.

Distances

approx. 8 km

The race will start at the historic building of Rocca Di Aries, the medival home of a bad ass general Andrea Fortebraccio who was a big deal in the 1400s and pretty much everything in Montone is named after him. You will run on a trail which starts on the top of one of the valley ridges at 1600 feet, cutting through the valley, dropping to a 900 foot elevation, and finishing back up in Montone. You will understand why we called the run a 'shuffle`! So, its up to you...come and compete against a friend or shuffle along with family. Take advantage of the wine stations, and take the kids along for the ride...

Yup, you read it right. Along the 8km race there will be water stations also offering local Umbrian wine for those who fancy a tipple on route.

At the finish line at the foot of Montone village, participants will receive a slice of pizza and a glass of wine (and water) to celebrate their accomplishment.

Stalls of local produce line the streets of Montone and pop up restaurants serve seasonal food in cosy tavernas. There is much colour and pageantry for all to enjoy, including fire juggling shows, a chance to try your hand at archery, and music playing at different venues around the village, a feast for the eyes and the tummy.

Put simply, this race combines the chance to to get away with your family, partner or a group of friends, participate in an exhilarating picturesque, short distance run, and experience a gastronomic festival in one of the most authentic medieval hamlets in Italy.

Oh, did we mention you will be assigned a region of Montone to run for. The pride of this area will be in your hands...
