Registration towards the closure for "VM10KM Garmin Forerunner" and a few bibs for Venice Marathon
Tuesday, 8th September , 2015 – We are planning the great appointment with the 30th edition of the Venice Marathon which will take place on October 25th from Strà to Venice.
An historical edition, which promises to be richer and more partecipated than ever: already nearly 7,000 athletes have registered the Marathon, a number that surely will grow again in the coming days to close at 8,000 registrations, maximum participants set by the organizers to allow the highest quality of services and the safety along the course.
Almost sold out the 4,000 bibs of the 10km combined with the marathon - the VM10KM Garmin Forerunner - that will take place in the final course of 42 km, from San Giuliano Park in Mestre to Venice. All sold out , in fact, the bibs and available are only those related to the Charitiy Program. Anyone wishing to run, then, can still register for one of the 23 non-profit organizations that have joined the Charity Program 2015 and choose to run for doing good.
Once again Alex Zanardi is the face and the heart of this new campaign, the great champion of handbike and former Formula One driver, for years friend of Venicemarathon and sensitive to this kind of initiatives. Last year, the debut of this new format of solidarity, the Charity Program collected 120,000 Euros, but this year the goal is to double, because the challenge of running solidarity will be linked not only to the marathon but also to 10 kilometers. The description of each non-profit organization, the system of personal fundraising and collection targets are available on www.venicemarathon.it.
Run the Venice Marathon, in the year of his 30th anniversary, will still be a unique and unrepeatable opportunity, starting from the commemorative and collectibles t-shirt that will be given to all marathoners - a long-sleeved shirt, made by Asics, which proposes the colors of the Serenissima Republic, gold and garnet, with a central wing of the Lion of St. Mark and the number 30 - and the medal, also gold and garnet, which is put around the neck of all those who complete the 42 km .
Finally, remember that the Venice Marathon is part of the rich calendar of events of the project "Venice Expo 2015": a series of initiatives and events organized around the Venetian territory to celebrate the Universal Exhibition in Milan and offer new proposals to the many visiting tourists. Being at the end of October, the 30th Venice Marathon is the closing event of this long Venetian route and surely will be a demonstration of strong appeal to all those who decide to combine the uniqueness of a visit to Expo 2015 with the exceptional nature to run the Venice Marathon in the year of the 30th anniversary.
