Running in Venice (Read 555 times)

    So I am Venice for the next 2 days and need to get in a 13 mile run.

     

    Anyone on here from Venice?  I tried mapping a run and just to get about 5 miles I think I was on 200 different streets and crossing about 50 bridges!

    2014 Goals

    Weight - 200 lbs (not happening!)

    2000 miles (Over 2000 and shooting for 2400)

    Stay healthy for Boston 2015 (So far, so good)

    Marathon - 3:05 (Didn't happen - Took and shot at sub 3 and blew up a bit)

    5k - 19:55 (19:43 July 4, 2014)

     

      Maybe you can take the boat to Lido di Venezia...You're on the northern  side of a very long island then, and you might run south to Alberoni.

        From what I understand, Venice is a better town for swimming.

          Having experienced the water in Venice, I disagree.

           

          I was hoping this thread would be about Venice CA.

           


          Imminent Catastrophe

            Venice is not good for running. If you can find your way onto the causeway to the mainland you could get a good out-and-back.

            Tahoe Rim Trail 100M 19/20 July 2014

              I think I will try the causeway tomorrow.  I did manage to find the bus terminal today so I assume it runs north from there.

               

              That will be good!

                I see just now the post, I'm italian, I'm curios about your course, have you found a way?
                I suggest to found a long road  and run along this to cover the target of 13 miles.

                examples

                fondamenta zattere al ponte  to---> fondamenta salute  about 13 times

                side nord giudecca fondamenta san eufemio to fondamenta san giovanni  about 12 times

                 

                or

                freedom road solution

                 

                via della liberta to san giuliano and back
