"35th Confindustria Venezia Venicemarathon & 10K": see you on Sunday 23 October 2022!

An edition that marks the restart of the national marathon and consecrates a new Italian athlete in the women's marathon is going to be archived. A whole month of events ended with yesterday, including Venicemarathon and Alì Family Run, which made over 20,000 people run.

Venice, 25 October 2021 - The 35th Confindustria Venezia Venicemarathon & 10 K, which took place yesterday, is the triumphal epilogue of a very long sporting festival that will remain in history, because it marks the restart of the marathon at national level and the rebirth of sport in all its facets, after the year of hiatus due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

A whole month of sporting events that involved the entire Venetian territory; 10 thousand runners who yesterday gave life to the 35th edition of the Venice Marathon and to which more than 10,000 people must be added who competed in the four Alì Family Runs, organized in the cities of San Donà di Piave, Chioggia, Dolo-Riviera del Brenta and Mestre.

Results that exceed the rosiest expectations given the health uncertainty that has characterized the past months and the difficulties encountered in implementing the new health provisions. The organizers have, in fact, worked hard to respect all protocols and ensure maximum safety for athletes and volunteers.

Great success yesterday also, not only for participants and the public along the route in which about 200 thousand people were estimated well distributed along all 42 kilometers and in compliance with anti Covid regulations, but also of virtual public. More than 30,000 people followed the 3-hour live broadcast on the Corriere dello Sport website, commented by the sports journalist Cesare Monetti.

Today the triumphal ride of the blue Sofiia Yaremchuk can be relived on Raisport at 5.30 pm, who after 22 years brought Italy back to the top step of the podium of the Venicemarathon, concluding her test in 2h29'12 ". A time trial in line with the standard required for next year's World Cup.

The greatness of this event is also measured in the wealth it manages to generate in favor of solidarity. To date, the solidarity marathon of Venicemarathon, of which the Paralympic athlete Giusy Versace was the testimonial, has raised about 40,000 euros but the Charity Program does not end there, because many associations will give the opportunity to donate also in the coming months, always through the Rete del Dono circuit. In six years of activity, thanks to this project, a total of more than 1,000,000 euros have been raised.

Registration will open shortly for the 36th Venicemarathon which will take place on Sunday 23 October 2022.
