Hail Caesar, the runners salute you! VENI VICI is much more than just a sporting event, it is a race that takes participants on an exploration of a major tourist route in France, that the locals of the Gard are fiercely proud of : UZES PONT DU GARD – NIMES, connected by the most famous Roman aqueduct in the world.
A Roman race
For 2022, the route will be in the Uzès > The Pont du Gard > Nîmes direction (with a superb finishing line at the Jardins de la Fontaine) to follow the history of the aqueduct, created by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. The Veni Vici is a chance to go back in time, with your trainers on, running alongside one of the most remarkable constructions in the world, built by the builders of Roman times: Nîmes aqueduct. The highlight of this construction is a masterpiece of ancient architecture: the Pont du Gard. The event is centred around this bridge.
Several routes are available, with something for everyone!
The VENI VICI is a historic event, but also a sporting challenge, with 5 distances to choose from (69 km solo or relay, 44 km solo, 24 km, 12 km, gourmet 13-km walk) and 3 different sporting experiences: running, timed Nordic walking and the gourmet walk.
To really get the most out of this fantastic area in the Gard, the route changes each year, both in terms of direction and itinerary.
So what are you waiting for? Get your trainers on and we’ll see you on 12 November 2022!
