Roccella, Pierluigi and Paolo (from Padua, Italy).
An Italian TV crew from Sky TV Italia was in Clare last week as part of a television documentary about leisurely running. Paolo Venturini, a policeman from Padua, is being filmed running in stunning scenery all around the world. While in Clare they filmed Paolo running along part of the Riesling Trail with local Guilio Dichiera from Evilo Estate who was born in Italy. Guilio is training for the Clare Valley Half Marathon, which is to be held on Sunday 3rd April. The group from Italy had already been filming on Kangaroo Island and the Barossa Valley before coming to Clare. They were to have come to Australia in October but Paolo had a bicycle accident last year and suffered a punctured lung. They came to Clare on a 38 degree day and were travelling on to film in the Flinders Ranges the following day.
The South Australian Road Runners Club [SARRC] organises several half marathons in South Australia. The first for the year, the Northern Argus Clare Valley Half Marathon, will be held on Sunday 3rd April 2016 on the Riesling Trail.

Gary Sims and Mark Hill inspect a section of the Riesling Trail that has worn down to the base rock. A grant from the Office of Recreation and Sport will fund the resurfacing of the trail, which has gradually eroded over its 20 years by rain, wind and thousands of feet and bicycle tyres.
