Registrations to the 6th Moonlight Half Marathon and 2nd Garmin 10K tour are going great!
The event organized by the Venice Marathon Club has already reached 3500 registrations!

After the success of last year and thanks to the magnificent setting in which they will be run, the two sporting events find themselves at a good starting point, counting already on more than 3500 participants. The international half marathon and 10 kilometers on Saturday 28th May on the Cavallino Treporti and Jesolo coast is organized by the Venice Marathon Club.

The 6^ Moonlight Half Marathon will start at half past seven from Punta Sabbioni dam. From the seaside the athletes will head for the magic of the Venetian lagoon running along via Pordelio, until leaving Cavallino and go after 21 km in the joyful town of Jesolo.

At the same time the first stop of the Garmin Tour circuit 10K will start from Piazza S.M. Elisabetta in Cavallino. Both races will finish in Piazza Mazzini, the heart of the event in Jesolo.

Once again the Moonlight Half Marathon will be, above all, a great celebration.

In Piazza Mazzini is going to be the stage for a real “sports village” for all those who love, live and communicate through sport. Here you will be able to find popular sector companies, test the latest innovations on the market, meet top runners , and participate in interactive activities. The Moonlight Village will open its doors on Friday 27th May from 2pm until 9pm, and on Saturday 28th May from 9am until 11pm.

Garmin Italy will also dedicate some space to training, “Sportcamp” partners such as ASICS and Enervit will provide, through meetings held by their experts, useful tips to better enjoy your passion for running. Do not forget the collaboration with Technogym, which will play an active role during each stop of the tour. An area will be set up, where all the visitors of the expo area will have the chance to run on Technogym’s new tapis roulant and also to support a charity initiative launched by Garmin in favor of the foundation Bimbingamba of Alex Zanardi.

At the end of the competitions athletes will move to the Capannina Beach Club at Piazza Mazzini to join the Moonlight Beach Party: free admission and free drink for all participants.

An initiative promoted by Confcommercio San Donà-Jesolo will give the opportunity to athletes and companions to enjoy a 10% special discount in Jesolo and Cavallino in many local restaurants. The Party Card will be delivered to the withdrawal of the bib number and will give you right to the special discount.

You can as usual choose among many ways to register to both events: online, by fax, in person at the Venicemarathon’s office or on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th May at the Moonlight Village, according the availability of free spots.
The great party of the Moonlight Half Marathon is back!
This year the Venicemarathon Club will take all of you fans of running in parks, at the beach, to the mountain and to historical cities. This is done through the intense ‘Venicemarathon Events 2016’ programme.

Our offers for 2016 present new initiatives, even outside the Venitian region, that will set some specific objectives. For instance, to diversify our events; to always combine the amateur version to the competitive one in order to get closer to a growing number of runners and joggers. Last but not least, to offer quality products able to improve the economic income of the area that hosts them and to spread a message of solidarity.

To start with, the first news regards "Alì Venice Running Days” on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24 April: a whole weekend of fun and sports for all. It will all begin on Saturday 23rd with the first edition of the "Venice Night Trail", a 16k night trail that starts at 9pm and that will snake through the heart of Venice along calli and campielli, up and down 51 bridges of the city. This is a powerful and charming way to discover the magic of Venice even at night. This year we will limit the participants to 2,000.

The program then continues the next morning, Sunday 24th, at the San Giuliano Park in Mestre with the Corrimestre (10 km) and Panoramica (the non-competitive run of 5, 11 and 18km) and all side events studied for the younger participants.

A sports schedule spread over two days, offering the opportunity to participate to the Challenge Running Days, which means to subscribe for the Night Trail and the Corrimestre at once.

The calendar continues in May with the Moonlight Half Marathon and 10K Garmin Forerunner. The appointment with the run "in the moonlight" from Cavallino Treporti to Jesolo is set for Saturday, 28th May. The unique scenery of the lagoon of Venice at sunset will be as always the framefor this double event: the 21.097 km and 10 km competitive competitive and open to everybody.

The other new event of the year will be the first Primiero Dolomites Marathon, organized in collaboration with the U.S. Primiero and scheduled on Saturday, 2nd July. There will be three paths to this breathtaking trail of varying length and difficulty, which will be developed along the pristine valleys of Primiero and San Martino di Castrozza (Tn): 42 km, 26 km and 6.5 km to suit both experienced runners and beginners on mountain tracks, with trails open to all. A unique opportunity to race in a lovely setting that is among the most spectacular in the world, a UNESCO world heritage site.

The most important event will be as always the 31st Venice Marathon scheduled Sunday, 23rd October and which will be combined with the Garmin Forerunner 10K. The Venice Marathon will have as prologue the three Family Runs (San Dona, Riviera del Brenta and Mestre) which will be held during the weeks before and that will involve students and enthusiasts of all ages in the metropolitan area.

For all, an opportunity not to be missed is the jackpot, with the purchase of Fidelity Card that will allow, with a single registration, to participate in all five events.

But the news does not end there! The Venice Marathon Club will organize this year the free collective training program "Corri X" that last year was very successful. This year, the intention of the organizers is to make events not only on the Venetian territory, but also to export them outside to allow more people to run together with some of the best experts of the field. The first of these will be a special edition for the Venice Carnival, Saturday, 6th Feb., starting at 8.00 am for a masquerade run at the heart of the most beautiful city in the world. The event is free and open to all, more information will be available shortly on the website and on the Facebook page CorriX.Città di Venezia. The calendar of other events will be published shortly.
