Stra (Italy), Sunday 6 April 2014
The Maratonina Riviera dei Dogi features a flat, fast and scenic half marathon course along the 'Riviera del Brenta' in the Province of Venice in northern Italy.
Participants 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 2014, the event will be staged in the small town of Stra near Padua.
Last year, more than 1800 runners took part in the race. The fastest finishers were Gabriele Carletti (1:05:20) and Giovanna Ricotta (1:18:28).
