Anyone running venice marathon
Anyone thinking about or entered Venice marathon?
I'm looking for an Autumn marathon that I have not done before and this is top of the list.
Anyone done it before with any advice?
I've PM-ed you, Running T, to avoid droning on and on about this one
cheers ATM. emailed back my email address.
Feel free to drone on - I thought thats what these forums were about
On the back of ATM's glowing report I have signed up for Venice. Looks like I am on my own.
Can't believe no one else is running Venice marathon. might be a lonely run!!
you might win....

Yeah - its my only chance..... knowing my luck i will fall over and DNF
Go, Go , Go ----you will not regret the experience.
I signed up a couple of years ago and was surprised to encounter quite a few Brits and Americans.
Its a bit deadly first thing in the morning when travelling by shuttle bus -wrap up well in a garment which you can discard - the free tea prior to starting is welcome.
Crossing the Grand Canal on the temporary bridge is something else - also remember to smile whilst running around St Marks Square as the photo is to be treasured!!!
Heroine - i have a code if you want to get 20 EUR off the price. I thought flights from Easyjet and BA were cheap at about £4 each way and hotels reasonable prices.
I thought Venice looked a great marathon and cant believe there is not more hype as the few that have mentioned it raved about it.
ps The last few humped back bridge are somewhat taxing after having run 25 miles!!!!
I am going to speak to my financial backer (my mother, naturally ) again this weekend and see if I can get it pinned down. The outward flight is a great price, but then Ryan Air stop flying for the season, useless b*ggers! Might have to swim home, make it a bit of a biathlon!
There are several good races between November and February abroad but all the budget airlines close down for the season.To go scheduled is a no no .
Easyjey is cheap but depends where you are flying to.
Easyjet are OK if you are going to holiday destinations but if you get off the beaten track you are struggling.
Its quiet here
Yeah someone else is doing Venice. No PB thoughts for me either, just an autumn marathon to keep me running and something to drag me out of bed for those long runs.
Yes I'm the same, always nice to have a goal and it's getting towards the dodgy end of the year time where I can never be arsed to do anything! Doing Venice means that I can have an easier November then start the Paris campaign, yeehaaa! I hope I don't go off running, I've already got a few things booked for next year!
I was lurking around RW forums last night and happened upon this thread. Then I did some googling, and somehow ended up signing up for Venice marathon. So. Hi!
Yeah 3 of us running Venice !!!! I doubt I will win now!!!
Well done Sasha - you know it makes sense......... are you staying on the island or mainland?
Heroine, I have a few planned as well now. Venice (oct), Portsmouth (dec), Jerusalum (mar), Brighton (Apr) and London (apr) and now i am scared.
