Successful participation also for the 1st Alì Family Run
Jesolo, June 27, 2021 - It is the Ethiopians Taye Girma and Meseret Engidu Ayele who have won the 10th Jesolo BMW Moonlight Half Marathon which took place last night in Jesolo in a rather hot and humid evening characterized by a great success with the public. Respectively, the times of the winners are 1h04'11 and 1h16'42 ".
A sprint victory for the Ethiopian Taye Girma who launched the decisive attack in the last 200 meters of the race, when the athletes were already passing through Piazza Milano. Kenyans Nyakundi and Riungu, who were leading the race together with the Ethiopian, were unable to counter the Girma acceleration at the end of the race.
“I'm happy, not so much for the weather, but for winning the race. The heat was hard but I really enjoyed the race course ”- said the winner at the finish.
Fifth place for Michele Palamini in 1h07'08", the athlete of the Vertovese Mountaineering Group and first of the Italians: "I admit I exaggerated at the start and halfway through the race my light went out, but I gritted my teeth and I'm happy to be arrived at the bottom ".
In the women's race, the Ethiopian Meseret Engidu Ayele made the void behind him, imposing a gap of over 4 minutes on Laura Biagetti, the Umbrian athlete, registered for the Lammari sports group of Lucca, and trained by Tito Tiberti, team manager for the Fidal of the 'No Stadia' events. "I'm happy with how the race went even though I suffered a little from the heat and humidity, but the course was very smooth" - said Biagetti at the finish. Ayele was also happy for the victory. The Croatian Nikolina Sustic arrived in the middle of the race.
Safety, both medical and technical, was one of the priorities of the event. For this reason, the organizers necessarily had to postpone the start of the 10 km, to solve a sudden technical-road problem on the route.
The Jesolo BMW 10K was won by Omar Zampis, an athlete from Udine registered with the Assindustria Sport Padova and trained by the former blue marathoner Ruggero Pertile and by Arianna Lutteri, an athlete from Verona who is a member of the KM Sport team.

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.

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.

Jesolo, 11 May 2021 - The Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon, scheduled for the evening of Saturday, June 26 and organized as usual by Venicemarathon under the patronage of the City of Jesolo, is ready to blow out 10 candles and celebrate its return after the stop of the last year due to the emergency from "Covid-19", bringing back to the streets of Jesolo that enthusiasm that made it a unique and much appreciated event.
The traditional 10K will also take place together with the half marathon. The competitions will be organized in total safety, following the protocols issued by the Italian Athletics Federation and in full compliance with the provisions in force.
"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. To do this in the best possible way, we look at the positive values of sport, sharing and the ability to unite the people that sport has. 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. We thank the mayor Valerio Zoggia and the councilor for sport Esterina Idra for having always shown great enthusiasm and support for the initiative, and we are sure that we will organize an event that, while respecting the current restrictions, will certainly give good emotions "- these the words of the president of Venicemarathon Piero Rosa Salva.
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.
Also thanks to the partnership with Jesolo Turismo, this year more than ever, the tourism promotion will be complete and articulated and the Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K will be experienced by many as an excellent opportunity to combine the competition with a pleasant sunny weekend, sea and relaxation.
