In expectation of running the Bologna Marathon 2021, we are glad to announce the birth of the Bologna Virtual Marathon.

The event is scheduled from 5 to the 7June 2020, on the occasion of the National Sports Day.

The appointment is on 5, 6 and 7 June 2020, on the occasion of the National Sports Day.

The Virtual Marathon is dedicated to all runners who were previously enrolled in the “Bologna Marathon” and in the “30 Km dei Portici”, the first two Italian running races that were canceled due to the Covid-19 emergency.

We choose not to stop and to find a way to run all together, even if at a distance, giving the opportunity to the athletes to participate for free in this amazing event!

What is the Bologna Virtual Marathon?

The Bologna Virtual Marathon is a race that you can run from anywhere in the world during a specific period of time.

The Bologna Virtual Marathon is technically not a race, it is not a recreational-physical walk, but it is an individual training that you can share with those who like you were ready to run the official Marathon in Bologna last March.

On June the 5th, 6th and 7th, everyone will have the chance to create his/her personalized route and, in 3 stages, run the distance of 42.195 km or 30 km.
