On Sunday 17th November, three running competitions will start from the Bentegodi Stadium in Verona: the 23rd Verona Run Marathon 42K, an international race with a certified 42.195km course included in the calendars of World Athletics, the world federation, and Aims, the World Road Racing Association; the 10th Verona Run Marathon 21K (21,097km), which can be run both as competitive and non-competitive, and the Family Run . Verona is a very beautiful city where runners will run on a UNESCO heritage route and breathe a very powerful atmosphere.
Type A course approved by Fidal and World Athletics. After the departure from the Bentegodi Stadium, the runners will move towards the northwest area of the city until they cross the Chievo dam from which they will almost reach Parona around km 11. From here the return which will be all on the very fast Lungadige, a ride without curves up to 18km, will then be on the right the Ponte della Vittoria, to cross the Adige, which will accompany the athletes towards the historic center. We will pass among the most famous monuments of Verona, such as the Basilica of Sant’Anastasia and Piazza delle Erbe with the famous Torre dei Lamberti. Participants in the half marathon now at 20km will head towards Piazza Bra and the Arena to cross the finish line. The marathon runners will cross the Adige again, this time with the Ponte Navi, to head towards the east area in the direction of San Martino Buon Albergo where there will be a splendid surprise. The passage at km 40 is suggestive when the runners will pass under the Porta Vescovo before returning definitively to the historic center and reaching the Arena to end a splendid 42.195km journey. It is important to underline that the marathon runners in the last kilometer will join the half marathon runners but will have a special dedicated and exclusive lane, therefore without interference from those who are finishing the half marathon.
