On Sunday 26th October, Venice Marathon will start once again.

Venicemarathon, this year on its 23rd edition, is a well-organized event which harmoniously combines sport and culture, and every year from 1986, draws in the Serenissima the attention of thousands athletes from every corner of Italy.

A picturesque itinerary which only Venice landscape can offer, a run between Piazza San Marco, Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) and the historic Ponte dei Sospiri, 42km of extraordinary beauty along the lagoon, which thanks to a wood-floating-bridge, joins the two banks of Canal Grande, from Punta della Salute (a Venice area) to San Marco pier, for a even more functional and comfortable race.

In addition, this year Venicemarathon’s organization thought about everyone; yes, because by now the marathon will be open also to several athletes with a physical disability, who will have the chance to race with no architectural barriers.

Therefore, dear marathon runners, brace yourself! Soon registrations will come to end…and you can’t really miss the opportunity to do sport between museums, villas and monuments of the most famous artists who made Venice one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
