Venice, 20 May 2024 – The curtain officially rises on the 13th Jesolo BMW Ceccato Motors Moonlight Half Marathon &10K which on Saturday evening will bring thousands of people from all over the world to run on the streets of Jesolo, in the three distances: half marathon, 10K and Alì Family Run by 3K for families.

This year too, with its 6,000 runners, the 'moonlight' event confirms itself to be the most attended summer sporting event in the territory and heritage of the city of Jesolo due to the important promotional and economic impact it generates at the opening of the season .

Registrations, therefore, closed in the 10K due to the sold out of available places, while the last places remain in the 21K and in the Alì Family Run. All the details to register are available on the website www.moonlighthalfmarathon.it
 
The great moonlight event will see the 10K start first at 7pm from Via Denmark, followed by the start of the 21k scheduled for 7.35pm, again from the same venue. The departure of the Alì Family Run is scheduled for 5.30 pm from Piazza Milano.
 
THE ROUTES - The traditional fast and flat route has been confirmed, ideal for obtaining excellent performance. The route offers very suggestive scenery and alternates different naturalistic aspects such as the sea, the river and the pine forest. The race will see the competitors start from via Denmark and take via Papa Luciani, two very wide road arteries which will make the start more fluid and flowing and which will lead the athletes to the hinterland of Jesolo. At this point the route will run alongside the Cavetta Canal, then cross the camping areas along Via Corer and return to the Canal again up to Cortellazzo. Here you will run alongside the suggestive mouth of the Piave river with its tourist port, and then return to Lido di Jesolo along the green avenues of the lush Jesolo pine forest and subsequently through the flowing Belgian and Oriente avenues. Finally, the seafront, the beaches, the melody of the sea and the glow of the full moon will accompany the athletes' last kilometers before crossing the finish line in Piazza Milano.
 
The 10K route (9,830 meters to be exact) is also very smooth and flat and will also offer very suggestive scenery made so by the presence of waterways, sea and white beaches.
 
The two routes will be completely closed to traffic thanks to the commitment of the Civil Protection, the Local Police, the Traffic Police and the over 200 people who will be guarding the streets affected by the passage of the athletes.

THE GREAT FESTAIN PIAZZA MILANO – This year too, Piazza Milano will act as the nerve center of the event and will host the Moonlight Village which for two days - Friday 24 May (from 3pm to 8pm) and Saturday 25 May (from 9am to 11pm) will welcome the passage of athletes, the public and the curious and will be animated by the activities of the sponsoring companies and the good music of Radio Bellla & Monella and Radio Piterpan.

Inside the Village, an area worth visiting is certainly the one dedicated to Diabasi. Here, the professionals of the massage school, in addition to loosening the athletes' muscles before the race with the highly specialized Officinalis products, will offer 'free massage lessons' for all those who want to approach this professional path and evaluate a new job opportunity. The invitation is open to everyone and all you need to do is show up at the gazebo. Another stand to visit will be that of ''Doppino Noto, Quarta2.0' which will collect used running shoes to be given to people in need.

MOONLIGHT PARTY AT GRIFONE PARK - The party will continue immediately after the finishing line at Grifone Park, 200 meters from the finish line. Here the athlete will immerse himself in the Moonlight Party, refresh himself with a plate of Young pasta, a can of Bavaria beer, and then throw himself into the dance with the DJ set of Radio Bellla & Monella and Radio Piterpan.

HERITAGE OF JESOLO - The moonlight race event is the heritage of the city and its territory, which every year generates an important promotional and economic impact for the territory at the opening of the season, which is around 2 million euros, thanks to the over 6,000 runners and their companions who every year give life to this great running party, taking the sporting opportunity to spend a weekend holiday in Jesolo. The Jesolo Moonlight also represents an international 'postcard' of the city of Jesolo, abroad thanks to the many digital campaigns planned on the Meta platform (Facebook. Instagram) in foreign markets and to the 'in-field' activities developed during the expo of the main marathons of the world, in which the Venicemarathon staff takes part.

Every year Confcommercio Ascom San Donà-Jesolo and Federconsorzi Arenili also welcome participants and companions of the event with open arms, offering discounts in addition re 50 commercial activities in Jesolo and providing athletes with over 3 kilometers of showers to refresh themselves during and after the race.
