The 3rd edition of the International Half Marathon from Cavallino Treporti to Jesolo will be run on 25th May
In few days the purchasing of the Walk of Life – Telethon bib-numbers for the 28th Venicemarathon will start
Venice, 8th May 2013 – After the great success of the first edition of the Venice Running Day which took place last 28th April, the Venicemarathon Staff is now getting ready for the 3rd Moonlight Half Marathon of next 25th May
The shore which connects Cavallino Treporti to Jesolo will see again the runners of the international half marathon organized by Venicemarathon together with the City Council of Jesolo and the City Council of Cavallino Treporti.
The race starts as always at sunset time (at 8 p.m.) from Lungomare San Felice in Cavallino and finishes in the heart of Jesolo, in Piazza Mazzini. The fast and picturesque race course snakes along the Venetian Lagoon, passing by breathtaking landscapes colored by the sunset lights.
The night race has become a must for many runners thanks to the fascinating landscapes: the sea, the beach and the organizing quality of the Venicemarathon staff. This is confirmed by the number of the applications already received almost 3,000. Therefore the participant cap fixed at 3,500 bib numbers has almost been reached. All information on how to register, pay and services included are at athletes' disposal on www.venicemarathon.it. Next 15th May the registration fee will pass from 27 Euros to 32 Euros.
Right in these days the purchasing of the charity bib numbers connected to the 28th Venicemarathon will start. As in the past 1,000 bib numbers will be devoted to the charity projects supported by Venicemarathon. This year a new charity partner will enter the race: it is the Walk of Life Project carried on by Telethon. Thanks to this project the runners who will buy a Walk of Life bib number run to support people affected by genetic diseases and are waiting for treatments. Once more running a marathon will be not only fun and passion but a moment to support someone who is in need of help. Bib numbers will soon be available on the website: www.venicemarathon.it and purchasable online.
The campaign to support the charity projects started last April in San Giuliano Park with the Venice Running Day, goes on with the Moonlight Half Marathon in Piazza Mazzini in Jesolo and will finish with the Venicemarathon next 27th October.
