Vittorio Veneto - Treviso (Italy), Sunday 27 March 2011
The Treviso Marathon has quickly established itself as one of the major marathons in Italy. In the last edition of the race, over 2200 runners crossed the finish line in the historic town centre of Treviso, located around 30 kilometres to the north of Venice.
The start of the marathon is 42 kilometres further north in Vittorio Veneto, a pleasant town at the foot of the Venetian Alps. The course across the densely populated Venetian Plain is traffic-free, certified, and very fast. Overall, it goes about 120 metres downhill.
Along the road into Treviso, runners pass a number of magnificent old villas, before they run through the old town with its canals, waterwheels, churches, piazzas and palazzos.
The event is well-organized and good value.
In 2010, Ottaviano Andriani and Daniele Caimmi broke the tape together in a time of 2:12:49. Amelework Fikadu Bosho of Ethiopia was first woman in 2:33:09 (see our race report 2010).
Remember that the night before the event the clocks jump one hour forward due to the start of 'European Summer Time', so don't be late!
