Venice by Run and Venice Marathon together to spread the word of sightseeing Venice in a running way.

Oh yes, we continue to widen our network to create a passionate family made by associations, companies, individuals, all of them pooled by running. What is better than a sport association known worldwide for its wonderful organization of the most important run in our beautiful city? Starting from the 2016 edition of the marathon we are partnering with Venice Marathon a.s.d., the true essential of racing in Venice.

“We are really glad to partner with an active tour company like Venice by Run is, that can make our runners even more satisfied from the race experience thanks to their beautiful guided running tours” said Lorenzo Cortesi, general officer manager of Venice Marathon a.s.d.

Venice by Run will offer guided running tours, in the previous and following days of the marathon (23rd October 2016) reserved to the runners that bought a bib of one of the weekend races to run across all the spots in Venice that, for organizational reasons, are not touched by the race course.

We will set up different tour distances to meet the requirements of most of the runners that are going to take part to the races. Regardless if you want to either train in the previous days or just relax and enjoy Venice in the following days of the races, the running tours will be the perfect complement to your stay.

Venice Marathon was founded 30 years ago to organize the first marathon ever run in Venice. After years of great success, the racing calendar has become nourished with races organized throughout the year: urban and mountain trail runs, half-marathon and 10k races.

The next runs ahead are scheduled for the Alì Venice Running Days – 23rd, 24th April 2016 – whose highlights will be the “Urban Night Trail – 16k” and “the 8th edition of Corrimestre – 10k”.
