Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon
On the evening of Saturday 26 June the international half marathon and the 6th Jesolo Moonlight 10K return to Jesolo.
Enrollments in full swing with already 2,000 members
The Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon, scheduled for the evening of Saturday 26 June and organized as usual by Venicemarathon under the patronage of the City of Jesolo, is ready to blow out 10 candles and celebrate its return after last year’s stop due to health emergency from “Covid-19”, bringing the enthusiasm that made it a unique and much appreciated event back to the streets of Jesolo.
The traditional competitive 10K will also take place together with the half marathon. The competitions will be organized in total safety, following the protocols issued by the Italian Athletics Federation and in full compliance with the provisions in force.
“We are particularly happy to announce the tenth edition of Moonlight Half Marathon and the sixth 10K which will not only be a celebratory event of the event and sport but will above all be a moment with which we hope to be able to mark the return to a normal life – is the Councilor for Sport of the city of Jesolo, Esterina Idra – 2021, which marked the beginning of a new decade and coincides with the moment in which, thanks to vaccinations, we are really rejecting the effects of the epidemic, it can be a turning point from which to start again. To do this in the best possible way, we look at the positive values of sport, sharing and the ability to unite the people that sport has. Moonlight Half Marathon is the best response to the desire to leave here in Jesolo as well as in the guests and protagonists who will participate in the event “.
“Finally we start again! We have always been ready in the starting blocks waiting for the shot, and now we can finally start running again towards the important milestone of ten years of this spectacular event. We thank the mayor Valerio Zoggia and the councilor for sport Esterina Idra for having always shown great enthusiasm and support for the initiative, and we are sure that we will organize an event that, while respecting the current restrictions, will certainly give good emotions “- these the words of the president of Venicemarathon Piero Rosa Salva.
The strength of the Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K will be, as always, the combination of the romantic colors of the sunset with the very suggestive scenarios that the route offers, characterized by an alternation of different naturalistic aspects such as the sea, the river, the pine forest, the promenade and the beach.
In addition, the programming of the event at the end of June and the logistics of the event, which will also be held this year in Piazza Milano, a stone’s throw from the beach, will further favor the combination of sport and tourism.
Also thanks to the partnership with Jesolo Turismo, this year more than ever, the tourism promotion will be complete and articulated and the Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K will be experienced by many as an excellent opportunity to combine the competition with a pleasant sunny weekend, sea and relaxation.
