WHERE AND WHEN
When does the event take place
July 6th, in the afternoon and July 7th, in the morning; this last race is especially for the inhabitants of Sedilo.
Two Sundays after, "the Ardia" by foot is run instead.
In Sedilo, in the province of Oristano.
The event takes place in the area of the rural Sanctuary, dedicated to Saint Costantino, a sort of natural amphitheater placed in the suburbs of Sedilo, near the Omodeo lake.
It is a very evocative festivity, that attracts an immense crowd of spectators every year, but is especially important for the locals, owing to the fact that the riders are exclusively from Sedilo.
