'Mari e Monti' (between Sea and Mountains) march
For many years now, the non-competitive, international foot race SEA AND MOUNTAINS takes place in Arenzano every September. The foot race unfolds between the coastline and the paths of Beigua Park, twisting and turning in a landscape rich in natural resources and picturesque panoramas.
Arenzano is the site where the Apennine ridge is closer to the coastline. This portion of mountainous territory is encompassed by Beigua Park, the largest park in the Ligurian region. This game reserve is characterized by a fascinating and complex mountain landscape overlooking the sea.
