WHEN TEMPLAR KNIGHTS MEET ULTRAMARATHON
Lost and saint souls, heroes: here are the Templar Knights
according to Umberto Eco. These legendary charachters left
the testimonies of their crossing in the beautiful landscape
of Basilicata. The ultramarathon/marathon “6 Ore dei
Templari-Memorial Vito Frangione” aims at recalling history
and tradition by linking them to sport. In Banzi, which is
one of the best representative “templar city” in Basilicata,
you will enjoy a powerful running contest which takes place
in a suggestive scenario, full of pure Italian human touch.
In April 2009 the “6 Ore dei Templari – Memorial Vito
Frangione” attracted 2000 people from all over Italy.
Next edition will take place on the 8th of May, 2010, in
Banzi and it will be valid both for the IUTA Italian
Ultramarathon Championship and as IAU Bronze Label.
The organizers (namely the sports association “Genzano on the
Road”) are happy to welcome to Banzi all the foreign
athletes who will like to join the ultramarathon/marathon “6
Ore dei Templari”.
