Course overview

The Moonlight Half Marathon confirms the new course, but the romantic secluded spots through which the race course snakes are still part of this enchanting race and offer you unique sights: sea, water canals, sunset, white beaches and night life. The half marathon under the moonlight, has now a new format, the course is new but always flat and fast but the most important change is that all pre and post race services will be handier. The Moonlight Half Marathon won’t be a point to point race anymore but a lap of 21K. The start and the finish line will both be in Piazza Milano, easily reachable by car and with many car parks at athletes’ disposal, here the Moonlight Village will be held together with all the pre and post services: bib number and goody bag pick up, exhibition area, awarding podium, changing rooms, personal clothes storage, toilets and showers. The race packet could be collected till few moments before the start. The start will be given at sunset time in Piazza Milano, the track goes then through the countryside in Jesolo, runs alongside Cavetta Canal till it reaches the tourist marina of Cortellazzo. You will run by the mouth of the river Piave to lead afterwards to Lido through the green parks of the luxuriant pinewood. The last part of the track will take you along the beach by the sea where the waves lap the sand under the moonlight before reaching the finish line in the heart of the night life town, Jesolo, in Piazza Milano. If you run the Moonlight 10K you will start short earlier but will enjoy the same magic and enchanting landscape of the Moonlight Half Marathon.
