22 May The Bologna Marathon 2020 becomes a virtual race
Waiting to be able to run the Bologna Marathon 2021, the Bologna Virtual Marathon is born, scheduled for 5, 6 and 7 June 2020, during the National Sports Day.
The “Bologna Marathon” and the “30 Km dei Portici”, scheduled for March 1, 2020, but canceled a few days before the start, due to the Covid-19 emergency.
These appointments, already sold out with a total of 3700 participants, will be scheduled in 2021, but, in the meantime, the organization team have decided to do not stop and they found an idea to run all together, even if separated by the distance.
The Bologna Virtual Marathon is a free virtual race dedicated for the race’s participants from anywhere in the world and at any time, from 5 to 7 June 2020
An option for the athletes prepared to run through the Bologna City street, to share the running passion.
This is a virtual appointment, you will really run and the participants can choose to cover the distances of 42.195 km (Marathon) or 30 km in 3 separated sessions.
Macron, Hoka One One, Illumia, Campani Group, Prep and Biorepair, are the prestigious partners who enthusiastically joined the initiative and they created a race pack for all the virtual race participants.
Macron, technical sponsor, in addition to making available its Macron Store network for the collection of race pack, will award, together with Hoka One One, various categories of participants, including those who will send the nicest photos, who will have ran faster, but even those who have completed the proposed distances slower.
No last runners, but the best sport community who love to live and share this passion.
The top Hoka One One athletes team will also will make a relay on the original map of Bologna Marathon 2020
Now it’s time to run on the street and …respect the rules because in this moment the best thing is to restart.
