Venicemarathon is an international marathon known worldwide. It carries the IAAF Bronze Label. The traditional distance is of 42.195 kilometers, and it is the most classic and fascinating discipline of athletics.

Today Venice Marathon is a marathon of recognized quality, as evidenced by the IAAF Bronze Label. A race that after more than 30 years continues to exercise a true fascination and appeal for the runners, with requests that continue to exceed the limit of 8,000 entries set by organizers. Large crowds attend the marathon expo and the race itself through a fascinating course.

For all Venicemarathon is something beyond just the "Marathon of Venice”: it is a container of events and initiatives which draw wide interest in many, not just the runners. The San Giuliano Park, the second largest park in Europe, is the heart of the week leading to the marathon, highlighted on Friday with the opening of Venicemarathon Expo Village and on Saturday with the Family Run, a 4K fun race which attracts thousands of school children and youngsters from the Venetian province. Other Family Runs are held in the weeks prior to the marathon in nearby towns.

Special emphasis is set on solidarity with the Venicemarathon Charity ProgramAlex Zanardi, the para-Olympic gold medallist and former auto racing star, is the main figure in the promotion of this program.

HISTORY

Defined as one of the most important event of that season, the 1st Venicemarathon registered more than 2,000 runners from various nations. The next editions became one of the most important appointment of this sport, arriving at the 34th edition.
