Fifth edition of the CMP Venice Night Trail, the city trail organized by Venicemarathon under the patronage of the Municipality of Venice and scheduled in the evening on Saturday 28 August, starting at 9 pm.
The trail has been included in the rich programme of events celebrating the 1600th anniversary of the foundation of Venice and the athletes will thus experience an even more extraordinary atmosphere.
As usual, 16 km to run and 51 bridges to climb to live the suggestive running experience at night in a city that is unique in the world, wrapped in the silence and accompanied by the sweet melody of water.
The path will wind its way in the the most typical areas of Venice, crossing campi and campielli of evocative beauty, going as far as Sant'Elena and the Biennale, and then going up again passing through Piazza San Marco, the bridge of Accademia and Punta della Dogana. From here the athletes will run along the Fondamenta delle Zattere up to San Basilio, along the Giudecca Canal.
At the departure and arrival of the event, the guests of the port area will be welcomed, as usual, in the Dorsoduro district, thanks to the collaboration with the Port Authority of the North Adriatic Sea and the "Venice Passenger Terminal".
