This year there is a new event for Christmas in Verona and it's something that will probably be replayed every year. It is called "Christmas Run" and it's organized by Verona Marathon and the city of Verona. The event is for charity and a part of the earnings will be devolved to the pediatrics ward of the Borgo Trento Hospital, for children with the worst diseases.
The run is on 19th December 2010 and many people will wear a Santa Claus suit and will run for 5 or 10 km in the centre of Verona. If the next year you want to plan your holiday in Verona, this another event you may be interested in.
