Here is the HOKA Pacing Team, the "guardian angels" of the runners of the 10th BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K.
Meanwhile, BMW is confirmed as Title Sponsor of the event and the registered athletes have already largely exceeded 3,000 runners
Venice, June 8, 2021 - Less than twenty days from the tenth edition of the BMW Jesolo Half Marathon & 10K, the pacer team is ready and on Saturday, June 26, they will help the athletes to run in total safety and at a controlled speed. This is the HOKA Pacing Team, that is a group of 30 expert runners whose dual task will be to carry athletes to the finish line, in compliance with interpersonal distancing and all health regulations that must also be observed during the race, and help them to achieve your goal.
HOKA Pacing Team is organized by the community “Quelli del Martedì - Venicemarathon Running Team & Friends”, a group made up of about a hundred athletes who for 7 years usually meet every Tuesday evening at the San Giuliano Park in Mestre to train together. The coaches of "Quelli del Martedì" are also supporting runners in their approach to the race, sharing training tables and useful tips on the event's Facebook page, in the "Road to Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon" section.
In the half marathon, the pacers will be divided into 10 groups that will observe the following time bands: 1h30', 1h35', 1h40', 1h45', 1h50'. 1h55', 2h, 2h15', 2h30'and 2h45', while the 10 km will be divided into 5 groups covering these times: 40', 45', 50', 55' and 1h.
In the meantime, the team of sponsors and partners who will run alongside the event is also being defined. BMW confirms itself as title sponsor for the second year, as well as the commitment of Pro Action 'sport nutrition partner', San Benedetto 'official water'; Bavaria 'official beer', 1/6 H Sport 'official shop', Alì - the Padua-based large-scale distribution company that will support the first edition of the Family Run, and Dolci Palmisano - the traditional Venetian pastry since 1926.
The American company HOKA, world leader in running footwear, will also become new sponsors of the BMW Moonlight Half Marathon, which will dress all participants with the beautiful technical t-shirts of the tenth anniversary and will provide the uniforms to the volunteers and the technical material to the pacer team and Grandi Molini Italiani with VitaMill flatbreads, which all athletes will find in the race pack.
Also of great prestige is the team of media partners who will help to amplify the message and promotion of the event. The project was joined by the authoritative sports newspapers Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport, the magazine of runners Corre and the radio stations Radio Bellla & Monella and Radio PiterPan, which will animate the Moonlight Village.
Thanks to the collaboration with Confcommercio Ascom San Donà-Jesolo, this year too athletes and companions will be able to take advantage of a 10% discount in many clubs and restaurants in Jesolo, presenting the QR code that will be sent by the organization.

"We are particularly happy to announce the tenth edition of Moonlight Half Marathon and the sixth 10K which will not only be a celebratory event of the event and sport but will above all be a moment with which we hope to be able to mark the return to a normal life - said the Councilor for Sport of the city of Jesolo, Esterina Idra - 2021, which marked the beginning of a new decade and coincides with the moment in which, thanks to vaccinations, we are really rejecting the effects of the epidemic, it can be a turning point from which to start again.

Moonlight Half Marathon is the best response to the desire to leave here in Jesolo as well as in the guests and protagonists who will participate in the event".
“Finally we start again! We have always been ready in the starting blocks waiting for the shot, and now we can finally start running again towards the important milestone of ten years of this spectacular event.

The strength of the Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K will be, as always, the combination of the romantic colors of the sunset with the very suggestive scenarios that the race course offers, characterized by an alternation of different naturalistic aspects such as the sea, the river, the pine forest, the promenade and the beach.
In addition, the programming of the event at the end of June and the logistics of the event, which will also be held this year in Piazza Milano, a stone's throw from the beach, will further favor the combination of sport and tourism.
