Treviso Marathon route 2020

The start and finish areas will be the same, the city of Treviso ... but along the Treviso marathon course participants will be able to appreciate the historical and artistic treasures of the surrounding area as they run past Silea, San Biagio di Callalta, Roncade and Casale sul Sile and then soak in the blossoming nature of the splendid River Sile nature reserve. A mostly flat track and, as such, particularly conducive to the improvement of timing performances in an area rich in history, nature and beautiful Venetian villas. 

  • Start area in Treviso, on Viale IV Novembre - Prato della Fiera.
  • After a short detour on Viale Nino Bixio, athletes will cross Santa Margherita Bridge and run along a stretch of the River Sile before continuing towards the historic center of Treviso. During this early stage, participants will cross Piazza Borsa, Piazza dei Signori with Palazzo Podestà, Palazzo dei Trecento, Palazzo Pretorio and then continue towards Porta Santi Quaranta, Bastione di San Marco, Ponte Pria over River Botteniga and Borgo Mazzini up to Porta Piave
  • Runners will then cross the municipalities of Silea, past the town hall, and San Biagio di Callalta, skirting round Biancade and its elegant villa Morosini.
  • Next will be the Roncade’s town centre, with the splendid Villa Giustiniani Ciani Bassetti, also called "Castello di Roncade" because of its ring of turreted walls.
  • The Treviso marathon new route will then head into Casale sul Sile: from via San Nicolò, runners will skirt the River Sile, passing near the church of Santa Maria dell'Assunta and the Torre dei Carraresi park, dating back to the 14th century.
  • They will then reach Lughignano and follow L’Alzaia del Sile up to Casier. As with last year’s edition, 12 km will be run inside the Regional Natural Reserve of the River Sile and over small bridges and charming sections of inland. In Casier runners will also pass the Parco Foundation, the 17th -century Villa Carlotta and Villa Contarini near Grazie.
  • Heading back, the route will go through the evocative Burci cemetery. This is an archaeological site that extends for 15,000 square meters in a meander sheltered at the confluence between the new course of the River Sile and the abandoned branch of the 'Sil morto' and that owes its name to 'burcio', a flat-bottomed boat, used for centuries as the main means of transporting goods in the lagoon. From here the athletes will continue towards Treviso between Alzaia and Restera, two areas very popular with runners and walkers from the entire province.

Running surrounded by the nature of Restera, runners will head up to the finish line placed in Prato Fiera, where end-of-race support will be provided and where the participants will be able to replenish their energies with local food and wine delicacies.

Runners can pick up their bib number and race packet at the Treviso Marathon Expo 2020 at Prato Fiera, in the arrival area (about 300 m from the starting line) on Friday 27th March from 12.00 to 19.00 and Saturday 28th March from 9.00 to 19.00. Sunday 29th March from 7.30 to 9.00.

Time recording and processing of the ranks for the marathon and Treviso half-marathon will be completed via an electronic chip. The chip will be handed out together with the bib, and those who do not wear one will not be added to the final rankings.

The time limit to finish the Treviso Marathon is 6 hours.

Medical assistance, refreshments and sponging areas are available along the entire racecourse.
