In the spirit of living well, Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is marking Global Wellness Day 2016, a worldwide initiatve dedicated to wellness and taking care of ourselves. Celebrated every year with a week’s activities leadng up to the second Saturday in June, Global Wellness Day invites everyone to free themselves from the stress of everyday life and bad habits and turn this integral philosophy into a part of one’s daily life.
Four Seasons Florence Run will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2016. The six kilometre race in the heart of the city will start from the Piazza del Duomo, then wind through the streets discovering the city’s beauty, history and monuments. The race eventually leads to the Giardino della Gherardesca at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, where after stretching and cool-down, the well-being event will finish with a healthy buffet created by Michelin Star Chef Vito Mollica together with nutritionist L. Bacciottini. Emphasis will be placed on the ingredients and healthy combinations to replenish the body with energy used during the race – a light menu, but above all, made without sacrificing taste.
The race is being organised in collaboration with Florence Marathon, the main racing event in Tuscany, together with the Rome Marathon, which is the most important international marathon in Italy, and among the top twenty in the world for the number of participants and quality. As in every contest worthy of the name, whether competition level or friendly, there has to be a prize for the winner: the first across the finish line will win an experience for two at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze that includes a night’s stay, dinner at Il Palagio restaurant and a spa treatment.
