The Annual Venice Marathon has been taking place since 1986. Sign up early in order to compete with 7000 runners from all over the world as they race through the streets of Venice. Spectators will be able to find numerous street musicians and food vendors to keep themselves entertained while the runners make their way to the finish line at Riva dei Sette Martiri.
San Giuliano Park is the centre of marathon-related activities such as the Expo and Family Run for children and teenagers that usually takes place one day before the marathon. If you are not ready to run a 42 km distance yet, you can opt for a 10K and still enjoy running through most of the famous sites of Venice.
