Sunday, October 26, 2014 will be run the 29th Venice Marathon. This year the marathon of Venice will be followed both on national and (great new) international level on TV, transmitted by Rai television (from 8.55 a.m until 11.40 a.m on Raisport2) and also in 64 foreign countries. In Europe will be responsible for coverage of the event the French channel Ma Chaine Sport, that will be on air in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal, Israel and all the sub-Saharan countries. The event will be also transmitted in Brazil, New Zealand, Turkey and most of the African countries. PATH The 6000 participants of the 42km run will be ready to start at 9.05 a.m. The starting point is, as always, Villa Pisani in Stra. The path of the march will run along the river Brenta, between charming villas and buildings of the eighteenth-century, linking Stra with Fiesso d'Artico, Dolo and Mira. Then the competition fits into the urban fabric passing through Piazza Ferretto in Mestre, the wide spaces of Park San Giuliano and then the long straight road of the Ponte della Libertà will involve the athletes in the historic centre of Venice until St. Mark's square and to the finish line in Riva dei Sette Martiri. Also this year the marathoners will run on a fifth bridge (made of boats) over the Canal Grande, built for the occasion by Insula to connect the bank of the Punta della Salute with St. Mark square.
