THE VENICE MARATHON, 25th of October 2009.

On Sunday 25th of October more than 5.000 athletes will participate in the Venice Marathon, starting from the little village of Stra’, on the Brenta Riviera which is famous because of the architect Andrea Palladio’s beautiful villas constructed along it, with the goal of finishing in the magical city of Venice!
42.195 metres of running through the Venice countryside, passing tiny canals and over 14 Venetian bridges, arriving in the Park Sette Martiri, quite close to San Marco Square, in a panoramic position on the Venice lagoon.
We have spoken to many people who participated in the Venice Marathon during previous years and everybody confirms that the route is very good as it’s very flat; a great chance to improve your own best time.

VeniceThe event is well organized and in order to avoid congestion the maximum amount of runners is kept to 7.000.
Apart from the Marathon there are two nice solidarity initiatives: fund raising to help the people of Uganda and a project which tries to reduce the architectonic barriers encountered by disabled people in Venice downtown.
Families can participate in the Family Run on Saturday 24th, and on the day of the race the athletes will have the chance to attend the “Pasta Party”, a yummy dish of Spaghetti right at the end of the race, to recuperate energy…
Logistically speaking, it’s much handier to sleep in the Venice countryside, so you don’t have to wake up too early on the Marathon day.
You can contact us for further information.

We wish you a great experience in this amazing Venice Marathon!
