Venice Marathon 2024

The exclusivity of running around the island of Venice

The Wizz Air Venice Marathon is an event with a long tradition since it has been held since 1986 and has a recognized quality as evidenced by the World Athletics Label. An event where sport, culture and tourism come together to give all the best to all runners of any distance, because in addition to the marathon there is also a half marathon and a 10K.

Due to the characteristics of the city, the Venice Marathon is limited to around 8,000 runners, which makes it a non-mass event to ensure good organization of the race and perfect treatment for the runner without causing inconvenience to the city.

The marathon course begins with the Queen of Venetian Villas, Villa Pisani, which exceptionally opens the doors of her park to receive the marathon runners before the start.

The first part of the course, along the banks of the Brenta River, takes place through a landscape rich in history, art and culture, characterized by many ancient Venetian villas overlooking the river.

The race then passes through the center of the towns of Marghera and Mestre, to then meander for 2 km inside the San Giuliano Park, where the 10K begins, and reach Venice over the Ponte della Libertà, a flat and straight bridge of almost 4 km.

The route continues entering the renovated port area and reaches the historic center of Venice where the most special and unforgettable part of the race is lived. You run alongside the Canale della Giudecca to Punta della Dogana, where a pontoon bridge built specifically for the race allows you to cross the Grand Canal.

Passing through Piazza San Marco (high tide permitting…), near the Campanile and the Doge’s Palace, the route reaches the finish line located on Riva Sette Martiri.
