  1. Dear Mr. Lemark,
    I am organising a small 10K + marathon weekend next April in the province of Marche in Italy. I am billing it more as a “marathon-distance destination run” as it will join nine walled hilltop villages in a beautiful, lesser-known area of the country. It is ideal for runners who want to run somewhere new and have already run a number of marathons. Chances are this course will not equate to anyone’s fastest time, but we will have small tots of wine at each walled village, a pasta evening, children’s race, tour of the medieval town of Arcevia, etc.
    Might I send you details? I was in Piran and Koper this August and spent ferragosto at a Slovenia church just inside of Italy near Opicina.
    Many thanks,
    Terence Baker
