Venezia, October, 31 2018 – The entire world clapped the heroes of the 33rd Huawei Venicemarathon. The photos of the athletes who ran in the high water were watched in every TV channel, journal and social.
For volunteers and the organization, this day was epic. The Venicemarathon Club managed an emergency situation, caused by the strong wind and the rough sea. The organization also organized the new route that excluded St. Mark Square in a few time. We appreciate all the over 2.000 volunteers of Police, “Carabinieri”, Local Police, Municipal Police of Venice, Firefighters, “Protezione Civile” and the medical service.
