On 15th November at 9 am an appointment in front of the Arena: the Verona Marathon 2015 is about to start! Roads will be closed to traffic along the entire Verona marathon route and the sports events in Italy connected to it - Cangrande Half Marathon & Last 10Km marathon- for a day dedicated to sports, entertainment and charity! 

The Verona marathon event has always distinguished itself for the perfect combination of organization, competitive spirit and passion for the sport events in Verona. It has reached the milestone of its 14th edition and remains among the most anticipated marathons in Italy in 2015! 

Included in the international FIDAL calendar (Italian Federation of Athletics) and IAAF (International Association Athletics Federation), the Verona Marathon in Italy in November 2015 will cover the traditional distance of 42.195 kilometres, starting and finishing in front of the magnificent Verona Arena. With regards to the Verona city marathon, the route will include the beautiful scenery surrounding the historic centre to the foot of the Valpolicella hills.

Besides the classical Verona marathon route of 42,195 km, the organizers have announced the return of the Verona Last marathon of 10km and the second edition of the Cangrande Verona, Half Marathon course.

Given the great success of the last editions, the short Verona, Italy Marathon Last 10Km has been confirmed as one of the sports events in Verona. An excited running event organized for charity that offers the opportunity to engage in a non-competitive run or walk along a path accessible to all.

Last 10km Marathon, an important side event of the Verona Marathon, every year involves thousands of participants: professional racers, enthusiasts, young and old, all marching to support important charity projects.
In addition, this year there will be many Non-profit Organizations that will be taking part in this event. They will enjoy important attention and at the same time aim to raise funds to finance and promote their charities.

Given the success of last year, the Cangrande Half Marathon will again take place this year alongside the main race. Launched in 2014, this popular half marathon in Verona enables many enthusiasts to take part in the race, competing on a reduced path of 21,097km. The same route (up to 19th km) of the 14th marathon in Verona in 2015, as well as the start and finish in the beautiful Piazza Bra, where the Arena is located, the famous Roman amphitheatre built in the first century AD and still in its excellent state of preservation.

Are you curious to know the origin of the name of this 'small marathon'? Can Francesco della Scala, known as Cangrande, was the most beloved member of the dynasty of Verona. A skilful conqueror, prudent administrator, great politician and generous patron, he was able to quickly consolidate the power of his noble family, but also that of the city of Verona, and soon became a legendary figure and never to be forgotten. It is to this character that the Cangrande Verona Half Marathon has been dedicated.

But alongside the Verona Marathon in Italy there will also be sport events in Verona in 2015 and entertainment throughout the day, not forgetting the Verona Marathon Expo and the 'Villaggio dei Sapori', organized in the picturesque square next to the Arena di Verona.

Verona and the race form a very successful bond. Besides the Verona Marathon, the Last 10km and the Cangrande Half Marathon, there are just another two major sporting events we would like to remind you of: the Giulietta and Romeo Half Marathon and the Verona Christmas Run. The first, which takes place every year in February, is the second Italian half marathon by number of subscribers, 10,000 in the last edition! The event is scheduled for Sunday, 14 February 2016, Valentine's Day: do not miss this romantic rendezvous with sport!

The second event is the Paluani Verona Christmas Run, a charity fun run organized in collaboration with the City of Verona. It is a step free and non-competitive race - of 5 or 10 km -that suits the whole family: the important thing is participants should attend dressed as Santa Claus! Taking part in this initiative, you can spend a really fun day helping solidarity because most of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
