With the claim “Go Alex” the Venicemarathon Charity Program “Special Edition” starts
The fundraising campaign connected to the Venicemarathon Virtual 42K & 10K of next 25 October - 1 November starts

Venice, 1 October 2020 - The Charity Program does not stop, too! Runners who participate in the Venicemarathon Virtual 42K & 10K (from October, 25 to November, 1) will also be able to choose this year to run for a good reason, donating or buying solidarity bib numbers available by the various NPOs participating in the program, all with the claim of "Go, Alex".

Alex Zanardi has been the testimonial for over 10 years of the solidarity marathon connected to the Venicemarathon and this year his "Obiettivo 3" project will be in, above all at the wish of his wife Daniela.

Therefore, the fundraising program promoted by Venicemarathon in collaboration with Rete del Dono, which since 2014 (the project's start year) has raised almost one million euros, begins today. To participate, just enter the dedicated page on the our official website, choose the NPO to help and raise funds thanks to the generosity of friends and family, thus combining sporting action with solidarity commitment. In fact, the project is based on "personal foundraising" or the involvement of marathon runners who become ambassadors of a solidarity project and take action to raise funds

Right now, the associations that participate in the program are: AIDAP, AIRC, ANVOLT, Africa Mission, Obiettivo 3, Iside Cooperativa Sociale and Raccontiamo con Francesca.

The Venicemarathon Virtual Race 42K and 10K is a virtual race open to all. Registered athletes will have a week to make it happen: from 9 am on Sunday, October 25 until midnight on Sunday, November 1. The distance must be precise (42,195 meters or 10 km) and covered in a single time (not in stages) and the athletes can be accompanied and supported by friends, relatives and teammates always in compliance with Covid regulations. Participate in the race is very simple, just download an application that will be provided to all members by the organization. The App must be installed on your smartphone and will allow you to follow the athlete's "live tracking" even from home; it will also collect and send the performance directly to the system, which will automatically generate a ranking. On the other hand, those who do not like to run with their mobile phones can use their smartwatch and upload their performance (track with route and chronometric result) directly on the application platform.

Important partners support the event such as: Banca Ifis, Hoka One One, BMW, Alì, Pro Action, 1/6 Sport, Corepla, Bavaria, San Benedetto, Nuncas, Regione Veneto, Il Corriere dello Sport, Tuttosport and Pmg Sport.
