The four Alì Family Runs are ready to start.
Venice, September 27, 2019 - Venicemarathon month has just started. For Venice and its territory Huawei Venicemarathon it is not just a marathon, but a real kermess of events and of initiatives that coin turn, for a whole month, all the Venetian area and further.
The calendar of events starts with the first stage of the four “Ali Family Run”, the events to promote sports and solidarity, organized by Venicemarathon, dedicated to schools and young people who, for four following Saturdays, embrace the whole area of Venice and will involve more than 18,000 people. It starts on Saturday, October 5 in Chioggia, it continues on Saturday, October 12 in San Donà di Piave, then on Saturday, October 19 in Dolo-Riviera del Brenta and finishes on Saturday, October 26 in Mestre - San Giuliano Park.
On Wednesday, October 9, as part of the Zero Waste Blue project, Venicemarathon and the Veneto Region will inaugurate, at Villa Pisani in Stra (the starting point of the Huawei Venicemarathon) a permanent ramp to improve usability and accessibility to this architectural asset not only to all the disabled athletes who will participate in the marathon but to all the many visitors who visit this beautiful National Museum every year. From some years, Villa Pisani opens its gates exceptionally to accommodate all pre-race services and allows athletes to warm up and perform all warm-up activities inside of the Villa. All athletes, in fact, cross the gates only to enter the corrals.
This year, more than ever, Venicemarathon's message of solidarity is strengthened thanks to two great Paralympic champions: Alex Zanardi and Giusy Versace. Both are the face, the aim and the heart of the Charity Program related to Venicemarathon, and both are very active not only fundraising for their non-profit organizations (Obiettivo3 and Disability No Limits), but above all to invite everyone to make a heartfelt gesture and give. Today, the 19 non-profit organizations have already collected 30,328 euros.
Exactly one month from the start, the registrations are going full steam ahead, with over 11,000 participants, including many foreigners, certainly attracted by the fact that Venicemarathon has become part of the prestigious Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Ranking. This means that the 2019 edition of Huawei Venicemarathon will be one of the more than 100 qualifying events for the Abbot Wanda World Group championship to be held in 2021, still to be defined. The runners, starting from the category of 40-years-old, will be able to earn valuable qualification points.
