Description

Welcome to The Truffle Shuffle - an 8km fun run through Italy's unspoilt Umbrian countryside.

The Truffle Shuffle is a race designed for you and your family to explore the beauty of Umbria whilst sampling local delights during one of the area`s most celebrated and established food festivals, Festa del Bosco in Montone.

This race is a chance for a great weekend getaway combining two of life's most rewarding pleasures, exercise and food. If you are like us and like food and wine, the Festa del Bosco is the perfect way to sample traditional Italian cuisine after doing a little run through unspoilt Italian countryside.

Event details and schedule

The race will start at the historic building of Rocca Di Aries, the medival home of a bad ass general Andrea Fortebraccio who  was a big deal in the 1400s and pretty much everything in Montone is named after him. You will run on a trail which starts on the top of one of the valley ridges at 1600 feet, cutting through the valley, dropping to a 900 foot elevation, and finishing back up in Montone. You will understand why we called the run a 'shuffle`! So, its up to you...come and compete against a friend or shuffle along with family. Take advantage of the wine stations, and take the kids along for the ride... 

Yup, you read it right. Along the 8km race there will be water stations also offering local Umbrian wine for those who fancy a tipple on route.

At the finish line at the foot of Montone village, participants will recieve a slice of pizza and a glass of wine (and water) to celebrate their accomplishment.
