Huawei Venicemarathon will be one of the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Ranking qualifying events
There are already 4,000 athletes registered for the 34th edition.
The last edition of Venicemarathon was voted as the best marathon of the year.
Venice, 29th January 2019 - 2019 starts with some good news! We are delighted to announce that the Huawei Venicemarathon will be one of more than 100 qualifying events for the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Rankings for the 2019/2020 series. Runners aged 40 and above, who complete two of the qualifying events, will earn age group ranking points and a chance to compete at the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Championships in 2021. Both the 2019 and 2020 editions of the Huawei Venice Marathon fall inside the second series so this is a great opportunity for all our Italian and international runners who love ‘points races’. For more information: www.worldmarathonmajors.com
 


Another important news is that the 33rd Huawei Venicemarathon, with 34.4% preferences, has been proclaimed "Best of 2018" marathon by the survey conducted by MarathonWorld and open to all runners. This result confirms how the edition of high water has been experienced by all participants as an extraordinary challenge to be repeated. Not by chance, 9 months before the event, 4,000 entries have already been assigned. We also remember that the 42K organized by Venicemarathon, as well as being certified “bronze label” by the I.A.A.F., is recognized by F.I.D.A.L as a "Gold" marathon.
