Great expectations for the Treviso Marathon 2018: Sunday 25th March get ready on the start line to take part in the famous race that crosses some of the most beautiful areas of the Veneto region!

Now in its 15th edition, the Treviso marathon course has by now reached a high position in the list of the most popular races in Italy, each year attracting important national and international athletes.

Many new features await the athletes enrolled in the Treviso Marathon 2018: a Treviso marathon new route, 42.195 km, with start and finish in Treviso and a change of date - the 15th edition will be held three weeks later than in previous editions - customarily taking place on the first Sunday of March – a fact that will allow athletes to have more time available for their training.

As far as numbering is concerned, it is worth remembering that a new system started in 2014, when the organizers decided to start a rejuvenating process of the event. In addition to the purely organizational aspects, with the aim of being amongst the top marathons in Italy, the Treviso Marathon has also overhauled its social channels and the route that, since its inception until the last edition, used to start in the city of Conegliano.

Treviso Marathon & Half Marathon route 2018

As already mentioned, for the first time in its history, the Treviso marathon 2018 will have coinciding start and finish points in the city of Treviso... the Treviso marathon route will follow a completely new course steeped in history, nature and Venetian villas. The River Sile is still one of the strength points alongside a greater attention towards the historic center of Treviso and the towns along the route, amongst them Villorba, Carbonera, Silea, Casale sul Sile and Casier. The virtually entirely flat Treviso marathon new route will provide the competing athletes with the chance to perform at their best and pull off some personal bests surrounded by charming locations, listed buildings and the splendid park of the River Sile.

  • The starting line is in Treviso, in front of the Coni Gymnasium in Viale Vittorio Veneto.
  • The athletes will continue along via Felissent and enter the town of Villorba where, in Piazza Umberto I, they will pass Villa Giovannina, an exquisite example of Venetian architecture of the late nineteenth century.
  • They will then head to Sant'Artemio park, the seat of the Province of Treviso, running past the province’s ethnographic museum of Case Piavone, a rural complex near the river Storga dating back to the late seventeenth century.
  • They will then continue towards Carbonera, passing through the towns of Pezzan and Castello where they will be able to admire Villa Tiepolo Passi, a splendid 17th century Venetian villa still inhabited by the family of Conti Passi de Preposulo.
  • After Lanzago, the athletes will run past the town hall of Silea and the Oratory of the Madonna della Salute, and once in Cendon they will come across one of the few remains of Memmo Villa, the statue of San Giovanni Nepomuceno, positioned on the Nerbon bridge.
  • Passing through the Lipu Storks Centre, the small port of Sant'Elena and the locality of Canton will take the athletes to the town of Casale sul Sile: from via San Nicolò, the marathon runners will run along the River Sile, passing near the church of Santa Maria dell'Assunta and the Park of Torre dei Carraresi, dating back to the 14th century.
  • When heading back to Treviso the athletes will also go past Casier. From the small port, the route will continue inside the Regional Nature Park of the River Sile up to the striking bridges over the Burci Cemetery, an archaeological site that extends for 15,000 square meters in a sheltered meander between the new course of the Sile and a relict section of the river. From here the athletes will continue along Via Alzaia del Sile and head back to Treviso crossing the areas of Alzaia and Restera, which are very popular with runners and walkers from the entire province who visit them in high numbers.
  • From Ponte dea gobba, opposite the bastions of Santa Sophia, at the 40 km mark, the athletes will enter the historic center to cover the last 2 km in what is nicknamed the 'Garden of Venice'. Excitement, adrenaline and the final bout of physical effort will accompany the athletes for the last few kilometers over the Dante bridge, through the University area, riviera Garibaldi and riviera Santa Margherita, Corso del Popolo, Piazza Borsa, via XX Settembre, Piazza dei Signori, Calmaggiore, via Roggia, piazza Trentin and Ponte de Pria to the finish line in piazzale Burchiellati, where after-race arrangements will be set up.

Runners can pick up bib number and race packet at the Treviso Marathon Expo 2018 - Sala Merci of the Chamber of Commerce of Treviso in Piazza Borsa - Friday 23rd March from 12.00 pm to 7.00 pm and Saturday 24th March from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm.
