The sporting event “Andersen Run” was born in May 2014, as opening ceremony for the Andersen Prize week. It was sponsored and funded by Sestri Levante municipality.

After four editions, it is now a very popular competition for experienced runners and also beginners.

The race has different categories:

“Andersen Trail”, 22 km (1250 D+), starting from Mandela park, continuing on Punta Manara and Punta Baffe promontory, with beautiful view on the sea

“7 Fairytale Miles”, 10.5 km, competitive and non-competitive race, starting from Mandela park and following the path to Riva Trigoso, then returning in Sestri Levante to run along the Baia del Silenzio over a boardwalk set up for the occasion.

“Half marathon between the bays”, a competitive 21 km half marathon

“Family Run”, a 5 km race for families.

Perfect combination between sport and tourism, guaranteeing high-quality organisation and accommodation services, thanks to a special formula combining sport, leisure and nature, the Andersen Run is truly an unmissable event.
