2 months left at the CMP Venice Night Trail: over 3,000 athletes registered!
Registrations for the fascinating night-time urban trail (16K and 51 bridges), organized by Venicemarathon and scheduled for the evening of Saturday 1 April in Venice, are flying.
Venice, 31 January 2023 – Running at night by torchlight in the historic center of Venice never fails to live up to expectations. The seventh edition of the CMP Venice Night Trail, scheduled for the evening of Saturday 1st April in Venice, reconfirms itself as one of the most awaited and attended urban trails (16K and 51 bridges) not only in Italy, with already over 3,000 registered athletes in two months after the event.
The bib race for the last 2,000 remaining places has already begun, the availability of which can be monitored in real time through the counter on the event website.
On the other hand, the event organized by Venicemarathon, with the fundamental support and patronage of the Municipal Administration of Venice and the Port System Authority of the Northern Adriatic Sea, is a unique event of its kind, which offers its participants the evocative experience of run at night in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, wrapped in darkness and accompanied by the sweet melody of the waves crashing on the shores.
To this romantic postcard is added the convenience of the services that the event offers to all its participants. Thanks to the collaboration with Venezia Terminal Passeggeri, the CMP Venice Night Trail will again this year be a guest of the maritime port of Venice, more precisely in the large area "Testata Marmi" and Cruise Terminal 123, where the CMP Village will be built with all the services pre and post race and in which the athletes can easily leave the car a few meters from the starting and finishing line.
As always, there will be 16 kilometers to cover and 51 bridges to tackle, with departure scheduled around 9pm. The spectacular route, as usual, will enter the most typical areas of the historic city. It will cross campi and campielli of suggestive beauty, going as far as the Biennale Gardens, and then returning through historic points such as Piazza San Marco, the Accademia bridge and Punta della Dogana. Finally, the athletes will go up the Fondamenta delle Zattere, along the Giudecca Canal, up to the port area.
Once again this year the race will be titled by the prestigious CMP brand, the sportswear brand of the Campagnolo group, which confirms its commitment as title & technical sponsor of the event for the fifth consecutive year.
CMP has signed all the t-shirts that the members will find in the race pack: a high quality technical garment thanks to the dry function technology and the use of highly breathable fabrics.
Alongside CMP, starting this year, Venice will also be 'illuminated' by the prestigious Japanese car brand Honda, which will join the family as main sponsor.
The 7th CMP Venice Night Trail inaugurates the long season of Venicemarathon events, which will continue with the 12th Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon scheduled for Saturday 20 May, the 2nd Venice Lido Beach Trail (Sunday 24 September) and the 37th Venicemarathon, Sunday 22nd October.
Several companies have already confirmed their commitment alongside the event: CMP, Honda, Pro Action, Alì, San Benedetto, Palmisano.
