The Marathon start is located in Stra, a small country town about 25k West of Venice. The finish is in the historic centre of Venice, after passing through St. Mark’s square on to the Riva Sette Martiri, along the lagoon facing St George island.

The Venicemarathon course is basically flat and fast. There are just a few difficulties, represented by 3-4 short slopes (100 meters or so) between the 25th and 35th kilometer.

In the final part of the marathon course (last 3 kilometers), runners will face 14 little bridges over Venice's canals. Wooden ramps are put in place to prevent athletes from running on the steps.

There are no cobblestones on the course (apart from the last 100 meters before the finish line). In the final 3 kilometres the running surface will be mainly made of large rectangular stone slabs.

The course is entirely closed to traffic and every kilometer is marked.

The 10k run takes place along the last 10k of the Venicemarathon course.
