Varese, land of events

Sunday, 24 September 2023 | Maccagno


The Pro Loco di Maccagno is organising the traditional Stramaccagno, a non-competitive running race, now in its 26th edition.
The races will take place on the municipal territory on the morning of Sunday 24 September.

There are three different ring routes, starting and finishing at the Parco delle Feste/Campo Sportivo area, which will allow everyone, young and old, runners or walkers, to spend a morning in the company of others and discover the Maccagnese territory:

  • 7.6 km race open to all
  • Nordic walking and 5 km walk open to all
  • Trail ride for all children up to 6 years of age

Registration is open from Monday 11 September at the Pro Loco offices until half an hour before the start on Sunday 24.

The entry fee is 10 euros for adults, 5 euros for children under 18, and free for children up to 6 years of age. It is possible to register as an individual or as a group. The largest group will receive a special prize.


The day's programme opens with the collection of the last registrations from 7.30 a.m. until 9.00 a.m. at the sports field, where the Pro Loco staff will provide the race package to all registered participants. Bibs are guaranteed for everyone, while T-shirts for the 2023 edition will be given to the first 200 registered participants.

At 9.30 a.m. it will be time for the start. A refreshment point will be set up on the track, taken care of by the Cerinotti confectionery. Also at the sports field, the children's lap will be held at 11.30 a.m. and the final prize-giving ceremony at 12 noon.

To end on a happy note, a set menu will follow at the Parco delle Feste organised by the Pro Loco.

The initiative is organised by Atletica 3V and Atletica Maccagno in collaboration with Pro Loco thanks to the work of many volunteers, with the patronage of the Municipality of Maccagno con Pino e Veddasca and the support of numerous important sponsors.
