Timing

The Timing Data Service chip is attached to the bib number and it will record the net time of the race. Do not remove it, no chip no time! The timing chip is disposable therefore it doesn’t need to be given back.

VM10K Pacing Team

Pacemakers are your guardian angels during the race!
A group of athletes are at your disposal and will help you to finish the marathon recording your goal!
They are the VM10K Pacers leaded by Julia Jones and they are ready to guide you during the VM10K on 27th October.
During the next weeks we will know closely each of them with some interviews in which we asked them to tell us more about their passion and their choice of being pacers. Some of them are veterans (they ran with the "balloons" of Venicemarathon for several years), others are beginners in this role, so they will bring the "first time" enthusiasm and adrenaline.
So, give yourself a time goal, look for your pacer and get ready to follow his/her balloon!
