The Maratonina Riviera dei Dogi features a flat, fast and attractive half marathon course along the 'Riviera del Brenta' in the Province of Venice in northern Italy.

Competitors run along both banks of the Brenta Canal, which connects the cities of Padua and Venice. The canal is home to approximately 100 villas, built by the Venetian aristocracy between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century.

The start/finish area changes from year to year. In 2013, the event will be staged in the small town of Fiesso d'Artico.

In 2012, more than 1300 runners took part in the race. The fastest finishers were Simone Gobbo (1:07:43) and Silvia Serafini (1:18:27).
