About your host
Hi my name is Sylvia!
I was born in Holland and I live in Montepulciano, Tuscany, where I work in the tourism and wine industry.
I am a certified sommelier and an experienced runner. Finishing my best marathon in New York City with a time of 3:13 was a dream come true.
Every day, I run through stunning Tuscan landscapes. Running through the vineyards is an unforgettable experience.
Montepulciano is in a unique part of Tuscany and is one of the most romantic and charming hill towns.
The Run and Wine experience is about 8k with frequent stops and a post-run surprise.
I hope to welcome you!
Run and Wine experience
Run and Wine
Imagine a moment when all of your favorite things come together as one. Friends, running, a beautiful cours and wine.
Join me in the naturally calming and stunning vineyards of Montepulciano. The run is about 8k on trail with frequent stops to take some pictures. It’s not timed, but participants should be able to run at least 5k.
Start and finish are at the 16th century San Biagio church, with views over the famous rolling hills. The course passes by some important Montepulciano sites.
The trail is challenging with several hills running down through the vineyards and up again several times. We’ll pass by vineyards towards the center of Montepulciano and up to the Piazza Grande.
The route then continues into the vineyards again, with spectacular views, and brings us back to the start/finish point. Here we’ll have refreshments available and a surprise!
