The godmother Giusy Versace: "the pandemic has not canceled people's generosity".
Registration for the 6th Venice Night Trail, 11th Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon and 36th Venicemarathon will also reopen shortly.


Venice, 15 November 2021 - The spotlight on the 35th Confindustria Venezia Venicemarathon has been lowered for a few weeks, but will soon come back on again with the opening of registrations for the three events that Venicemarathon will organize in 2022: the 6th Venice Night Trail scheduled Saturday 9 April, the 11th Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon on Saturday 21 May and the 36th Venicemarathon which will take place on Sunday 23 October.

However, there is a marathon that has not yet crossed its finish line and that will continue its run until the end of the year. This is the 'charity marathon' of the Charity Program, the solidarity fundraising project, now an integral part of the Venice Marathon and which to date has raised a total of over 50,000 euros.

The 18 non-profit organizations participating in the initiative will still have time until the end of 2021 to be able to achieve the collection objectives set in the initial phase, even if there are associations that have already managed to reach their target. This is the case of the 'Banca degli Occhi Foundation', committed to improving corneal transplantation and researching rare and genetic eye diseases, which even exceeded its initial goal by 200%, raising € 10,024; 'Salus Pueri Foundation', which ran for Pediatric Nephrology in Padua and managed to raise more than expected (7,854 euros), 'aBRCAdabra', the association that brings together BRCA gene mutation carriers, which reached the goal of 5,641 euro, the 'Granello di Senape' which has been managing the library of the Male Prison of Venice for years and which raised 2,000 euro to donate new books to the prison and the association 'RacconTiamo con Francesca' which, thanks to the 1,539 euro, will finance the participation in training courses in Narrative Medicine for staff working in homes for the elderly.

On the other hand, the Rotary project "Run to End Polio" promoted by District 2060 deserves a separate mention, which has already collected 16,780 euros, thanks to 224 donations, but which is only halfway through its ambitious collection path, set at 30,000 EUR.

Also for the godmother of the event and testimonial of the Charity Program Giusy Versace, the edition that has just ended was a strong signal to restart: "The Venice marathon has restored confidence and energy to all of us. I was thrilled to see the athletes running and the non-profit associations get back in the game despite the difficulties. There have been many people who have shown that the pandemic has not canceled their generosity and this fills my heart. I thank the president of Venicemarathon Piero Rosa Salva and all the staff for having wanted me again by their side, and I extend my heartfelt congratulations to them for the work done ".

Venice, 24 October 2021 - Sofiia Yaremchuk could not have made her debut on the marathon in a better way. The athlete of the Army Sports Center, trained by Fabio Martelli, was the interpreter of an intelligent and judicious race: she did not respond to the jerks of the African athletes near the San Giuliano Park, maintaining her regular pace, and then resuming them and overcoming them along the Ponte della Libertà to the final walkway that led her to finish at the finish line in Riva Sette Martiri with an excellent time of 2h09'12 ”.

"I am very happy with this victory, I hoped so much and I believed in it to the end. I realized that I could have done it when I stayed in the leading group. I was a little afraid of the bridges in Venice, but the public gave me the right charge to grit my teeth and enter the final draw. I dedicate this victory to the Army Sports Center and I hope this is only the beginning ".

The men's 'crazy' race: after passing the half marathon in a quick 1h03'58 ", the trio of favorite athletes, made up of Kenyans Justus Kangogo, Geoffrey Yegon and Gilbert Chumba, first fell apart and then lost inertia, allowing the incredible return of the fourth compatriot, Anderson Seroi.

The 36-year-old athlete of the CS Army followed by Piero Incalza, on his debut in the specialty, was good at maintaining a steady pace throughout the race, finishing not far from the leaders and showing excellent room for improvement.

The VM10K have crowned two promising youngsters. Among the men, Andrea Mason of Silca Ultralite Vittorio Veneto won, who with 35'13 "tamed the competition of the favorite Pietro Sartore (Atl. Vicentina, 35'22") and Stefano Ghenda of Trevisatletica (35'52 " ).

“We have a strong feeling of confidence and a great emotion in being here today to introduce the 35th edition of our event. We must not neglect all the problems in working for months with no guarantees, facing all the organization and economic difficulties, mostly connected to restrictions to secure proper health conditions. We could not cancel an event which is part of the patrimony of not just the city of Venice, but of its territory, with special emphasis this year which is the 1600th anniversary of the foundation of Venice. We felt directly responsible to the institutions and to the runners, who have continued to show their desire to run in Venice, although most of the world’s leading marathons have switched to Autumn from Spring because of Covid 19. We wish to thank all those who have stood besides us in our return to normal activity, with a special consideration for Confindustria Venezia which has become our title sponsor,” as marathon president Piero Rosa Salva said in his introduction.

On behalf of all the industrial leaders we wish to thank president Rosa Salva and company staff for their determination. Our members are the protagonists of our industrial structure, which is worth over 45 billion euro. When we were approached for  a partnership, we accepted to support the event both financially and in the organization. We are happy to take an active part in the event, which will allow runners and tourists, both Italians and foreigners, to enjoy a splendid Venice and its territory,” as said by Confindustria Venezia President Vincenzo Marinese.

Stra, Fiesso d'Artico, Dolo and Mira ready to applaud the passage of the marathon runners on Sunday 24 October

Venice, 13 October 2021 - The Riviera del Brenta is also waiting with great enthusiasm for the return in the presence of the Venicemarathon and its usual colorful and festive snake that for over 35 years has 'embraced' and greets the four municipalities that overlook the Brenta river, in a very suggestive and characteristic landscape setting, along which the protagonists are the Venetian villas built in the eighteenth century by Venetian nobles.

As per tradition, the departure is welcomed by the municipality of Stra and the start-line located right in front of Villa Pisani, now also the National Museum. For some years now, the Villa has also been exceptionally open on the morning of the competition to welcome athletes, thanks to the well-established collaboration with the Polo Museale del Veneto.

Around the third kilometer, the athletes meet Fiesso D’Artico, whose name comes from the Latin term "flexum", which is the curve that the Brenta forms in this stretch. Later the name Arctico was added, in honor of Angelo Maria Artico who devised the diversion of the river to protect the country from floods.

After Stra and Fiesso, you enter the municipality of Dolo, at the sixth kilometer. In this stretch, athletes traditionally receive warm encouragement as they pass through the historic center and in particular in front of the Church of San Rocco.

From the ninth kilometer, the athletes run in the municipality of Mira, the longest stretch encountered so far, with its ancient noble palaces such as Villa Widmann, Villa Venier Contarini, Villa Mocenigo and Villa Bon.

The Riviera del Brenta therefore represents an integral and essential part of Venicemarathon.

The start of the 35th Venicemarathon is scheduled for approximately 9.30 am, on Sunday 24 October, and as always it will be a great party for this area. In the meantime, registrations for the event are continuing at full speed.

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.

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.

Running alongside 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.
