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.

Registrations are proceeding at a good pace, with more than 3,000 bibs already assigned.
