The race starts in Stra, on the mainland, 25 km west of the city of Doges. For the first part of the race, you will run along the Riviera del Brenta where you’ll see the magnificent vacation villas the Venetian aristocracy built during the 18th century.
You’ll then cross the 4 km long Liberty Bridge to arrive in Venice’s Port Area. The race of the course is run in the city center. You’ll cross the Grand Canal on a floating pontoon bridge, pass by Piazza San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale, before reaching the finish line located in Riva Sette Martiri.
The course is quite flat but there are a few short climbs between the 25th and 35th km.
