Venice, September 15, 2021 - With the return to school desks of students from all over Italy and with the approach of the 35th Venicemarathon, the time has also come to talk about Alì Family Run, the four non-competitive races of about 4 km reserved for students and families who, like every year, mark the approach to the great marathon party on October 24.

After last year's stop due to the health emergency from Covid-19, Venicemarathon returns to promote sport in the entire Venetian territory with the Ali Family Runs that will take place one week after the other and will affect the municipalities of San Donà di Piave, Chioggia, Dolo and Mestre, involving over 15,000 people. The great protagonist will be, as always, the enthusiasm of young people and families who will be able to give life to a great party and eagerly awaiting the 35th Venicemarahon.

The calendar of events begins on Saturday 2 October with the appointment in San Donà di Piave, continues on Saturday 9 October with Chioggia, Saturday 16 October in Dolo-Riviera del Brenta and ends on Saturday 23 October in Mestre-Parco San Giuliano, where it will also rise the Expo-Venicemarathon Village.

As always, the events will also have a solidarity aspect, in fact most of the proceeds from the memberships will be allocated to participating schools and in favor of Alex Zanardi's "Obiettivo3" project, created to encourage and support the introduction of disabled athletes to sport. In addition, the Rotary District 2060 also this year reconfirms its participation and support, to raise awareness among young people on the importance of the fight against polio globally. The logo of the “End Polio Now” project will be present on all the white t-shirts that the participants will wear during the races, and information gazebos will be present in each competition field.
