Record numbers for The 32nd Huawei Venicemarathon

19/10/2017
Venice, Oct.19 - Record numbers for Sunday’s 32nd Huawei Venicemarathon, with a total of 14,000 runners in the 42k and 10k events.

The marathon has reached its set limit of 8,000 registrations, one third of them coming from 77 countries, one third from the northeast of Italy, and the other third from other Italian regions.

The limitation is due to restrictions at the arrival, the waterfront facing the St. George island after all runners have gone through St. Mark’s square enroute to the finish. The whole arrival area has been fully rearranged this year to better accommodate the runners, with more space and more facilities, separating the 42k runners from the 10k finishers.

The limit for the 10k was set at 5,000 but registrations from the charity organizations linked to the marathon have added another thousand. Benefits from charity are expected to exceed last year’s total of over 130,000 euros.

The marathon is the only sports event allowed to cross the Grand Canal on a special bridge set up by the municipality, and again allowed to move through St. Mark’s square – a unique experience.

The event will be televised live for three hours in Italy the morning of Sunday, Oct.22. It will also be shown live or taped in over 140 foreign countries.
