We are happy to be able to confirm ourselves as supporters of the Alì Family. Run, after the successful edition of Jesolo, because it is an event that embodies our values ​​- says Matteo Canella, Head of General Affairs of Alì SpA - - We are born as a local reality that lives and grows in and for the territory. We believe it is essential to give value to the time you spend with your family, if you can do it in the open air and by practicing sports, during recreational events designed especially for families you contribute to improving life in the area. And this is precisely our goal, our mission, so we warmly await the start of the amateur racing event attended by the most heterogeneous public, more or less athletically prepared, but united by the desire to spend quality time together"

Venicemarathon Charity Program: when running becomes a gesture of heart and charity!
Image
The 35th Venicemarathon & 10K also this year launches an important fundraising initiative which, in a few hours after opening, has already raised 4,500 euros.
In the meantime, registrations for the marathon and 10K on 24 October continue, an event included in the calendar of celebrations for the 1600th anniversary of the Venice Foundation.

Venice, 8 September 2021 - For years now, the Venice Marathon has become an important event for solidarity too! Dozens of non-profit associations and non-profit organizations take the opportunity of this prestigious international stage to raise awareness of athletes and the public and raise useful funds for important causes and projects. This is the essence of the Venicemarathon Charity Program, a fundraising initiative promoted, for the seventh year, together with the crowdfunding platform Rete del Dono and thanks to which a total of over € 1,000,000 was raised.

So the Charity Program linked to the 35th edition of the Venice marathon is underway, which in a few hours from the opening has already raised 4,500 euros. The collection mechanism is very simple and is based on the principle of personal foundraising, where runners become ambassadors of a solidarity project and take action to raise funds among friends and relatives. Donations are free and anyone can choose to support the project they prefer.

Also this year the projects presented are very interesting and of a different nature. There are some of international scope, such as the construction of water wells in Uganda promoted by Africa Mission - Cooperation and Development and the global fight against polio in Rotary 2060.

Others of a national nature linked to the prevention and research of breast cancer such as the AIRC Foundation, the inclusion in the educational-sports path of over 400 young athletes most in need in the cities of Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin, Bergamo and Trento promoted by Sport Senza Frontiere onlus, in research in the field of biology, regenerative medicine and stem cells with the TES Foundation, for the support of carriers of BRCA genetic mutations with aBRCAdaBRA Onlus or to promote Narrative Medicine courses for staff working within Rsa with RacconTiamo con Francesca.

And, finally, the even more territorial projects, connected to local realities such as: the purchase of instruments and equipment for pediatric nephrology in Padua (Salus Pueri Foundation), economic support for Venetian women victims of violence (Iside Cooperativa Sociale), support research into eye diseases (Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto onlus), equip the library of the Male Prison of Venice with new books (Il Granello di Senape), help research on pediatric diseases (Città della Speranza) , support the school (AIDO) and support young bone marrow donors (Admo Venezia).

Helping others through a gesture of solidarity is, therefore, one more reason to run the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K, which this year will be an even more special event because it is included in the program of events for the celebrations of the 1600 years since the foundation of Venice.

Sponsors of Venicemarathon: UYN, HOKA, BMW, Banca Ifis, Alì, San Benedetto, Pro Action, 1 / 6H Sport, Nuncas, Bavaria, Palmisano, Corepla, Fairbnb.coop, Coldiretti, APVinvestimenti and media partners: Corriere dello Sport, Tuttosport, Running, Sport Economy and PMG Sport.

Venice, September 1, 2021 - In preparation to the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K, which will take place in Venice on October 24, an important role is, as always, played by the pacers whose task is carried out not only on the day of the race, but above all in the previous months, through continuous interaction with members and the sharing of tips and tables on the social channels of the Venicemarathon.

Furthermore, this year, considering the anti-Covid regulations and the related FIDAL protocols, the pacer's task takes on an even more important value, since its function becomes twofold during the race: on the one hand, as always, helping athletes to cross the finish line. in the desired times, cadencing the pace and motivating them in times of difficulty; on the other hand, to enforce interpersonal distancing and all the regulations that the protocols provide.

The UYN and HOKA brands will provide the necessary clothing (technical uniform and shoes) to the squadron of 55 pacers who will represent the Venicemarathon Pacing Team: 41 in the marathon and 14 in the 10K.

In addition to the consolidated group of expert pacers led by Julia Jones, the team will be composed and coordinated by the Venicemarathon Running Team and by "Quelli del Martedì" a group of runners so nicknamed for the collective training they perform every Tuesday evening (for over 7 years) at the San Giuliano Park in Mestre and who, already during the Moonlight Half Marathon at the end of June, were able to better manage this new situation.

In the marathon, the fastest "hare" who will accompany the athletes to the finish line within 3 hours is Gabriele Gallo, standard bearer of the Venicemararthon Running Team, who this year will run his 11th Venice Marathon, while the so-called "broom service" will be as always guaranteed by the Apulian athlete Mariella di Leo, also a pacer with great experience, who will be accompanied by Domenico Masiero and Fabio Pustetto.

The other members of the Venicemarathon Pacing Team are: Cristiano Girotto, Valerio Girotto, Gabriele Arcaro, Marco Turri, Paolo Donà, Dimitri Peron, Roberto Vio, Paolo Rossato, Marco Tricarico, Matteo Esquinazy, Massimo Preziosa, Fabio Simonato, Fabio Basei, Nicola Caiati , Alessandro Pizzi, Laura Pieretti, Ermes Capovilla, Marco Cinquantini, Giovanni Frumento, Alessandra Derme, Giuseppe Bossi, Emanuele Saiu, Marco Mannucci, Stefano Gorgosalice, Mariangela Curini, Luca Zorzi, Piertommaso Carraro, Alessio Rizzato, Francesca Sanna, Giovanni Demarco, Daniela Schiavon, Alvise Callegaro, Francesca Spinsanti, Detlef Blaesse, Andrea Leita, Astrid Gagliardi and Ilaria Razzolini.

60 days left to the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K!

The Running District is born: an area of ​​very recent urban redevelopment near the Mestre train station that will become, during the Venicemarathon on October 24th, an ideal meeting and reference point for all runners and families in tow.

Venice, 25 August 2021 - There are exactly 60 days left until the great party of the 35th Venicemarathon which, after the virtual edition of 2020, on Sunday 24 October will bring fans back to run through art, history and culture, on the extraordinary route that leads from Stra to Riva Sette Martiri, in the heart of a Venice. In addition to the 42k, as usual, there will be also the VM10KM at the same time, which will start from the San Giuliano Park in Mestre and will develop along the last stretch of the marathon, also finishing in Riva Sette Martiri. Among other things, this year the event is included in the program of events for the celebrations of the 1600th anniversary of the foundation of Venice, so the athletes will experience an even more evocative and special atmosphere.

Moreover, the cross-sectional running offer is also completed by the Family Runs, promotional events dedicated to families and young people of about 5K, which will involve the Venetian territory throughout the month of October. The Family Run scheduled in Mestre on Saturday 23 October will instead become a sporting occasion also for companions and friends accompanying the athletes enrolled in the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K.

But the big news that the organizers intend to launch this year is the Running District, that is an area of ​​very recent urban redevelopment, close to the Mestre railway station, which during the Venicemarathon, precisely due to the type of hotel offer, will become a meeting point and an ideal reference point for runners, teams, sports groups and families in tow, but above all a very comfortable logistic-receptive center. This is via Ca 'Marcello, a road that skirts precisely track 1 of the Mestre station, where there are four different types of accommodation, suitable for any need for a stay, brand new, ultra-modern, only 100 meters away from the shuttles that will take you to the departure of the marathon in Stra, at the start of the 10K at the San Giuliano Park and back. In addition, this area is connected with the cycle path that leads to the San Giuliano park and with trains and buses connected to Venice.

The four accommodation facilities, which will also host the Saturday evening pasta-party, are the Leonardo Royal Hotel Venice Mestre, which will also act as the headquarters of the marathon, the Campanile Venice Mestre hotel, the hostel of the famous international chain AO Hostels and the Staycity Aparthotel.

Another element of strong appeal is certainly the technical t-shirt, of the highest quality and great value, which all subscribers will find in the race pack of both the 42K and 10K.
The orange-colored jersey from the UYN Marathon line is a garment designed especially for runners who face long distances and who need to feel comfortable in the fit and with always dry skin. There are many technologies applied to the fabrics: from the Hypermotion, thanks to which the seams in the shoulder area have been eliminated to eliminate discomfort and constrictions and offer maximum comfort, to the Coolvent technology capable of refreshing and at the same keeping the body dry thanks to the fabric interior that favors the constant flow of air and the rapid absorption of sweat. And then the Drylight technology, thanks to which the fabric becomes ultra absorbent and eliminates the sensation of moisture on the skin. The jersey is ergonomic, ultra-light (weighs only 70 grams) and the materials used are eco-friendly and designed to respect the environment. Also present on the shirt are Banca Ifis, the “official bank” of the marathon, and HOKA, the “official shoe”.

Finally, this year the athletes will have the opportunity to opt for an insurance coverage, which can be purchased at the time of registration, able to reimburse the entire fee even in the event that the athlete finds himself having to give up due to a precautionary quarantine, for having contracted Covid, or for other causes always related to health reasons.

Registrations are open.
