A few rumors were already circulating the day after the 2009 Venicemarathon, but only now we are able to confirm it officially: the route of the next Venicemarathon will go through St.Mark's Square. A.S.D. Venicemarathon Club recently received approval from the City Council to go across the magnificent square that is the very heart of the lagoon town.
The Technical Direction of the marathon is already at work to study the alterations to the route that will be necessary to make the spectacular passage inside the square possible, a passage that will only occur in 2010, for the Special Edition of the 25th Anniversary.
About 1 km after the exit from St.Mark's Square the runners will reach the Venicemarathon finish line, located - as always - in "Riva Sette Martiri".However, the marathon route could change not only in its lagoon sector, but also in the Venetian mailand. In agreement with the town administration, in fact, we are evaluating a solution that will enable the course to pass through Piazza Ferretto as well. Piazza Ferretto, located in the heart of Mestre, is the "mainland counterpart" of the more famous Piazza San Marco.
