STORIES BY RUN - Entering Venice

13/09/2017
The last ten kilometers of Venicemarathon will lead you into the historic center of Venice which will show you its characteristic elements: the lagoon, the islands and the bridges, much important links between all the parts of Venice, island in the middle of the lagoon basin. Exactly a bridge, or better two bridges, will allow you to reach Venice. With “a bridge” we meant the Liberty Bridge: opened in 1933 and named Ponte del Littorio, it was renamed with its current name at the end of the Second World War. Beside this bridge there is the historic trans-railway bridge: it was ...

Julia Jones: Crazy Autumn changes

07/09/2017
The other day I had to take a break from running for a few days. No more intervals or long runs, just swimming and napping to recuperate. My body was giving me clear signs that things were not going well and that I was pushing the whole living-like-a-pro-athlete-but-you’re-not deal a little too far.   Then voilà , the next day it was … cooler. Not cold, not colder, just cooler. Probably not too much of a difference in temperatures during the day but first thing in the morning I ran at 7:00 a.m. instead of having to get up at 5:30 a.m. Last night I even had to put a light cotton ...

STORIES BY RUN – Parco San Giuliano

06/09/2017
After Marghera, the landscape of Venicemarathon will change again. The runners will enter Parco San Giuliano which stands on the shores of the lagoon, near “Ponte della Libertà” and halfway between Venice and Mestre. An area with a significant symbolic role: it is both the access to Venice and center of many social and cultural interests. This area, heavily degraded over the years, originally was a marshy area, used in recent decades as a landfill of industrial sludges and urban waste, with highly polluting factors and threats for the lagoon habitat. With the new millennium, the ...

06/09/2017
On Sunday, October 22, the 32nd Venicemarathon runs from Stra to Venice.Venice, September 7 -With 45 days to the 32nd edition of the October 22 VeniceMarathon the organizers are facing the possibility of a full house for both the 42K marathon and its 10K brother. There are over 6,500 registrations for the marathon, with a set maximum of 8,000, and over 3,500 for the 10k whose limit is put at 5,000. Limitations are set because of the narrow waterfront in the lagoon city just after Piazza San Marco must not create problems for the runners after their arrival. Foreign presence is up to 30% which ...

Julia Jones: The elephant in the room called “Injury”

01/09/2017
You might not have noticed that these weekly articles are written in both Italian and English, my mother tongue. I write them both because I like the translation to be done in a certain style. I start each article with an idea and then the topic leads me to decide if I'm more inspired in one language or the another. Today I started out in english and I asked my husband if there was an Italian equivalent to  "TheElephant in theRoom". There isn’t, so I had to explain in the Italian article thatan elephant in the room is an anglo saxon metaphor for an obvious problem that no one wants to ...

STORIES BY RUN – Marghera and Mestre

31/08/2017
After the Venetian villas that characterize the race course along the Brenta Riviera, we are now entering the Municipality of Venice. Passing the industrial area of Fusina and Marghera, a symbol of the twentieth-century industry (seen as driving force of the economy of that period, but also as cause of environmental problems) and launched in 1917 by Conte Volpi, we enter the center of Marghera. The urban plan was developed since 1925 along the same lines of the “City Garden” model promoted by the movement founded by Ebenezer Howard: welcoming buildings designed for the venetian ...

Julia Jones: Using races to prepare your Venicemarathon

04/08/2017
As I write this, there are only twelve weeks until October 22nd, the day you’ve hopefully penciled in on your calendar to remind you that you’ll be running Venicemarathon. Twelve weeks can be seem like few or many, depending on where you are with your preparation. If you want to see it from another point of view: if you train four times a week there are still forty-seven workouts to complete. Does that feel like to few or just enough? From my point of view you still have the month of August to lay down a solid foundation and then start with a long block of marathon refinement in ...

After Dolo the race course of the Venicemarathon continues for several kilometers along the Brenta Riviera and its stunning Venetian villas. Entering the territory of Mira, the water will be the key element of the race course: Brenta's branches and the waterway characterize the landscape till the Venetian lagoon.   The waters flowing in the territory started to be regimented with various works from the thirteenth century, firstly under the influence of the Signori of Padua and then, from the 16th century, under the stable domain of the Venetian Republic.   Along the way, the ...
