36th UYN Venicemarathon 42K-21K-10K: here is the medal chosen by runners!

Over 10,000 registered with 30% of foreigners and many 'pacers' from abroad

The UYN Venicemarathon is preparing for the final rush. There are now just under 3 months to go until the big appointment on 23 October with the Venice Marathon and the 'sister' races of 21 and 10 kilometers that will run simultaneously along the same spectacular route as the marathon, up to Riva Sette Martiri in Venice.

The great return of foreign athletes (about 30%) and the constant growth in registrations, in addition to the sold out of the 21K, lay the foundations for a thirty-sixth edition with great numbers that, after two difficult years due to the pandemic, will bring back Venicemarathon not only to be one of the most fascinating autumn marathons, but also one of the leading sporting events on the international stage.

Pacer Gondolieri
The internationality of the event is also evident from the large group of foreign athletes who enthusiastically accepted the invitation to become 'ambassador' of Venicemarathon in the world and 'official pacer' to experience the emotion of a unique event from within, making himself available to others.Of the approximately 150 athletes who will give life to the UYN Pacing Team in the marathon, 45 are the foreigners who have already confirmed their presence, coming from all over Europe and even from South Africa and Hong Kong. Like 'gondoliers' (so nicely presented on social networks), the pacers' task will be to' ferry 'the athletes to the finish line in the set time, making them live a unique and unforgettable experience. This service will also be guaranteed in 21K and 10K races thanks to the collaboration with the Venicemarathon Running Team and the entire squadron (over 200 people) will be dressed by the UYN and HOKA brands.

The medal
This year the gondola also becomes the topic of the medal that all finishers of the 42K-21K-10K will receive after the finish. The graphics have been chosen in recent days through a virtual vote on social media that has aroused a lot of interest and which, out of 4 graphic proposals, saw the image characterized by a gondola or comb iron prevail with over 500 preferences, with its typical 'S' shape that recalls the course of the Grand Canal and its six teeth (prongs) attributable to the 6 'sestieri' of Venice. 

Running becomes a solidarity and corporate challenge
The 36th UYN Venicemarathon is also an occasion in which non-profit associations, third sector entities, companies and multinationals can compete in different ways and forms. It will be a solidarity challenge that associations and organizations will pursue with the 'Venicemarathon Charity Program', where the goal will be to involve the largest number of big-hearted runners, capable of raising funds for the various charitable projects and the various non-profit organizations (for example today already 15) will match this edition. Instead this year for the first time, the UYN Venicemarathon can also become an exciting all-corporate challenge thanks to the 1st 'Banca Ifis Corporate Cup', a nice competition designed for employees of small-medium-large companies who want to get involved. in game and compete on distances of 42-21-10K to win the company trophy.
