60 days left to the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K!
The Running District is born: an area of ​​very recent urban redevelopment near the Mestre train station that will become, during the Venicemarathon on October 24th, an ideal meeting and reference point for all runners and families in tow.

Venice, 25 August 2021 - There are exactly 60 days left until the great party of the 35th Venicemarathon which, after the virtual edition of 2020, on Sunday 24 October will bring fans back to run through art, history and culture, on the extraordinary route that leads from Stra to Riva Sette Martiri, in the heart of a Venice. In addition to the 42k, as usual, there will be also the VM10KM at the same time, which will start from the San Giuliano Park in Mestre and will develop along the last stretch of the marathon, also finishing in Riva Sette Martiri. Among other things, this year the event is included in the program of events for the celebrations of the 1600th anniversary of the foundation of Venice, so the athletes will experience an even more evocative and special atmosphere.

Moreover, the cross-sectional running offer is also completed by the Family Runs, promotional events dedicated to families and young people of about 5K, which will involve the Venetian territory throughout the month of October. The Family Run scheduled in Mestre on Saturday 23 October will instead become a sporting occasion also for companions and friends accompanying the athletes enrolled in the 35th Venicemarathon & 10K.

But the big news that the organizers intend to launch this year is the Running District, that is an area of ​​very recent urban redevelopment, close to the Mestre railway station, which during the Venicemarathon, precisely due to the type of hotel offer, will become a meeting point and an ideal reference point for runners, teams, sports groups and families in tow, but above all a very comfortable logistic-receptive center. This is via Ca 'Marcello, a road that skirts precisely track 1 of the Mestre station, where there are four different types of accommodation, suitable for any need for a stay, brand new, ultra-modern, only 100 meters away from the shuttles that will take you to the departure of the marathon in Stra, at the start of the 10K at the San Giuliano Park and back. In addition, this area is connected with the cycle path that leads to the San Giuliano park and with trains and buses connected to Venice.

The four accommodation facilities, which will also host the Saturday evening pasta-party, are the Leonardo Royal Hotel Venice Mestre, which will also act as the headquarters of the marathon, the Campanile Venice Mestre hotel, the hostel of the famous international chain AO Hostels and the Staycity Aparthotel.

Another element of strong appeal is certainly the technical t-shirt, of the highest quality and great value, which all subscribers will find in the race pack of both the 42K and 10K.
The orange-colored jersey from the UYN Marathon line is a garment designed especially for runners who face long distances and who need to feel comfortable in the fit and with always dry skin. There are many technologies applied to the fabrics: from the Hypermotion, thanks to which the seams in the shoulder area have been eliminated to eliminate discomfort and constrictions and offer maximum comfort, to the Coolvent technology capable of refreshing and at the same keeping the body dry thanks to the fabric interior that favors the constant flow of air and the rapid absorption of sweat. And then the Drylight technology, thanks to which the fabric becomes ultra absorbent and eliminates the sensation of moisture on the skin. The jersey is ergonomic, ultra-light (weighs only 70 grams) and the materials used are eco-friendly and designed to respect the environment. Also present on the shirt are Banca Ifis, the “official bank” of the marathon, and HOKA, the “official shoe”.

Finally, this year the athletes will have the opportunity to opt for an insurance coverage, which can be purchased at the time of registration, able to reimburse the entire fee even in the event that the athlete finds himself having to give up due to a precautionary quarantine, for having contracted Covid, or for other causes always related to health reasons.

Registrations are open.
