Since 1986, Venice hosts The Venicemarathon. Every year about 6000 people, professional runners and amateurs, run in this marathon. It starts in Spinea, a small inner city in Veneto, and goes along the famous Riviera del Brenta admiring the Palladian Villas and many other historical summer houses of the noble Venetian families. No other marathon in the world has the honor of going over some Venetian bridges, running in the old streets and crossing Sant Mark’s Square before reaching it’s end on Riva dei Sette Martiri. http://www.venicemarathon.it
